Trying still 6

Trying to get to the heart of the matter…
through contrast.
a personal documentary

This film edits together super 8mm home movies I shot over several years with some footage of Times Square in NYC in 2004. Some of the film was handprocessed. Sound effects are added to connect the dots. Contrast is the theme: contrast in light, contrast in allure, contrast in worship, contrast in value… 2004 (click on image to view a YouTube excerpt)

Fruitcake is a cut-out animation originally shot on kodachrome super8 film. Utopian scenes of Christmas and household domesticity from 50’s, 60’s and 70’s magazines were clipped, shattered and animated to reveal the structures beneath the facade of liquor-laden fruitcake making bliss. Kris-Kringle is a degenerate and creepy dolls come to life to trick-or-treat. A distorted music-box sound track provides an off-kilter accompaniment to this well-aged dysfunctional mini-melodrama. 2000 (click on image for excerpt)
