Free registration is required for viewing AND you must vote on 3 different films for any of your votes to be counted. I apologize about that weird rule, but I suppose it’s meant to balance things out. Regardless, I would love it if you checked it out!
Apologies for the long absence, readers. I’ve been busy with mostly non-film, no-fun sorts of things.
I am however, working on an experimental short for the Chicago FilmmakersLocation Sound Recording & Editing Techniques class, in which I’ve been enrolled for the past month. My process has been a little slow-going, but I’ll post the finished piece [or at least some version of it], once I get done with it.
For now, you might consider taking a gander at this short film from 1940, which documents some bizarre Soviet attempts at animal corpse resuscitation. Produced by Moscow’s Techfilm Studio.
Our Fallen Spacemen is a documentary short I made in 2006. It captures the methods and ideas behind a brief yet thought-provoking and widely seen public art occurrence, created by the late-night El-train rider ARD.
His three-hundred-sixty “Our Fallen Spacemen” posters, which appeared unexpectedly on Chicago’s Brown Line from May ’05 through January ’06, emphasize the potential obscurity of certain corners of American history by acting as small reminders of each individual who has died within our NASA program.
The film was commissioned by Chicago NFP film producers, Split Pillow, and premiered in 2006 as part of Volume 1 of their now-annual omnibus documentary film series, “Chicago 360.”
