Robert Todd's Trauma Victim which I think was a plan b from his original
shoots for his longer doc piece In Loving Memory

Saul Levine's Light Licks, which are planned I guess, but result from
uncontrollable overexposing.

Silt's Kemia, I think that's the one, which is "performed" on a specific
broken dual 8 projector.

In the vein of Sherman's March, I think many of bill brown's film follow the
same sort of format wherein the filmmaker sort of gets distracted by other
things and the narrative takes random directions based on who he meets along
the way filming.

Tess Girard's Benediction, which has a lovely section in the middle composed
of material shot with a broken 16mm camera.
