I agree about Nate Boyce... his work is really excellent. He has a recent
video called Primary Retrograde Inversion that is particularly incredible.
And Stom Sogo's work is also very interesting, it's very heavily layered
video sourced from Super 8 film... it's extremely dense and very
beautiful... I have contact info for them both.
