In The Year 7510

Finally had to write down the directions for how the TV works for when I'm away and the family wants to watch it. It takes five remotes for it to work and I'm totally okay with that.  There's something that makes you feel less liberal about having a big flatscreen TV but I am getting used to that as well.

Everything Old is New Again

How cool is Duane Swierczynski?  I pre-ordered his new book, Fun and Games, for my beloved Kindle, and he sent me a postcard from The Alamo.

G.I.s In Space (Super-8 B/W Silent, 1982)

My homage to old-time serials, watched feverishly in my teen years; I shot this mostly in my parent's garage with Estes rockets and borrowed costumes from the high school. Filmed on black-and-white Super-8 Tri-X film stock in Muncie Indiana in 1982, later projected on the wall and recorded on SVHS, now presented digitally.

Geekbusters (Super-8 Silent, 1984)

Fueled by multiple viewings of Ghostbusters at the local cinema, and armed with shop-vacs and jumpsuits, my friends and I made this parody short in 1984, filmed on Super-8 in Muncie, Indiana. Later this was projected on the wall and taped onto SVHS, and very recently digitized for your modest pleasure.
