PSYCHO PORPOISE by Rock Ross, of San Francisco's No Nothing/New Nothing Cinema, is a great short work of direct-safety-pin-to-16mm scratch filmmaking. Very detailed frame-by-frame work (on image and sound)--each time I've screened it I believe I've screened the original. It is a small wonder to behold. It's very West Coast, very No Nothing, short, silly, loud, humorous and fun, skirts a very fine (and interesting) line between abstraction and cartoon representation. A masterpiece of the genre in my opinion.
