Billy, you really ought to get a youtube account, if you haven't already. Its always interesting to get feedback from other filmmakers  and video artists. Deeky's Halloween video was great and nobody should claim to own the soundtrack to music you took time to dub yourself. I've had to remove videos over issues like that. Mute my soundtrack and you ruin the whole thing. In a way, I feel like I've been created these videos in a vacuum. But like in radio, if you talk to yourself over the air, or in any other medium, someone's bound to see and hear it... Nevertheless, I'm still cutting footage from the unfinished feature Gone With The Sun, which I directed and co-wrote with Todd Martin. We had to pull the plug because it was going to cost more to produce than we anticipated. There's  no music, but an interesting use of ambient noise and cross dissolves, I think. 
Anyway, I wanted to get something cut in time for Halloween, so...

Jonny:

Sorry you and Todd had to pull the plug because of lack of funds, but remember Kenneth Anger had the same problem with all of his films, Puce Moment being only a segment of a longer intended film, The Puce Woman.

Hope you & Todd can make use of the Gone With The Sun (was that the original title, then you changed it to another one in honor of Jean Luc-Goddard's Alphaville, wasn't it?, and now back to the original title?)

Anyway, hope some use of the film for an audicence can be made, as Anger did with Puce Moment(and, Kustom Kar Kommandos, andother one intended to have more, sequences  but still put into use what was filmed

Jonny, thanks for the above link.

I did finally find the links to 4 of your videos in an e-mail from you, and have (whatever my I don't know what it is national origin)-rigged them onto 8mm video tape with my digital camera, and will later record the sound, to dub them onto regular VHS and then watch & study them, and give you more detailed opinions.

Wish I knew how to save a video to USB or DVD or CD if it is possible.

 Yes, I've recut "Bully Blues" after a filmmaking friend, Ben Burke, suggested I whittle it down. This is the closest to my original vision for the film. The longer directors cut on Vimeo is like an expanded edition. Also, I have been inspired to come out on my channel as aspygay which means I have Asperger's and I'm gay. I didn't spend most of my life in one closet to hide in another one. Other people with channels, who are bold enough to come out on their channel page, indirectly encouraged me to do so. I also want to add my voice to those who oppose bullying, with a message on religious bullying. By that I mean people who use bible verses to bash others. Its book abuse. I also want to promote the idea that God Hates Bullies, which is not a difficult conclusion to draw, the David & Goliath story being just one example.

Thanks, Billy. I may open the Vimeo account, so people can download them to their computers. Or I may send out DVD+Rs. I know better than to just give my work away. I'm just glad people can see it.

I'm proud of the fact that "Gone With the Sun" and "Bully Blues" are two productions with totally different casts and producers. I have no clue how to market myself or these films. So this is really a sociological experiment for me.

GOD HATES BULLIES

I'll take my sign down if you will...


( Hope you appreciate my art. )


Billy tells me that some people have a harder time coming out about having a social disorder than being gay. Really? That's news to me, but damn interesting. Maybe I came out of that other closet, too soon. I just know I like being upfront with people...

On Filmmaking:

I'm sure producers may even have issues in the way I film and cut things. But in one case, I haven't seen a cut from them. In the other, I've seen their cut... :

 
I did not see this until the night it premiered. The producer called me just hours before the film festival to tell me it was going to be screened. The only editing suggestion they took from me was: use Steverino Hayes' cover of "just One Look". I thought it would go good in the background. My idea of putting it in sepia tone, they just couldn't envision. So i wasn't prepared for the above version. There's an outtake at the end that shows I was directing. I wanted there to be a fight at the end. I like that the fight is is so impressionistic in my version.

Also, the producer was pressuring the editor to get the film finished - yesterday. Eventually she had to finish the cut herself. That was actually the second version, don't know what happened to the first... Anyway, the blips do remind me of Paul Morrissey's films. But like The Andy Griffith Show, its funnier in black and white. Sepia tone gives the image more depth. What I learned from this experience: I can't cut anyone else's movie, and I wouldn't want anyone else cutting mine. I feel like a punk in a way for recutting it my way, but I have to be able to live with it, before I can move on. Before I got my mac, I never had enough time to edit. No that I have it, I have to go back and fix stuff before I can move forward.

Also, Count Floyd's film "Slices of Life" won the Show Us Your Shorts festival. Its awesome:

Jonny:

Gotta rush off to work, but just photo'd the last minutes of that long one of your 1998 TV show.

Will find some blank audio tape and record the sound, then dub it and the digital 8mm VHS onto full size VHS.

Rube Goldberg would be proud of my (whatever my national origin is) ingenuity!

Here's a video I put together for Club Devo. I took the footage from Prelinger Archives, which Deeky turned me on to.
I just picked the images that appealed to me and made it as weird as I could.

Thanks. Lois always did have something of a low voice. Maybe she's really Jimmy Olson in drag. ;-)
The mad scientist also "sings". Not that I intended to make this a musical. If I had thought of I way to make the people of Metropolis line dance, I would have.
