For short loops i do just what John suggested. For longer loops I haven't
yet developed a solution so i cut frames each side of the splice and put
them on core. With larger loops you just have to cut and prep on site or
trust the gallery staff to follow instructions.

It could have been historical examinations, theory, essay, memoirs. It could
have been the film I am making at this moment." -Guy Debord
