Cool, thanks for the advice. I think what I'm going to do actually is
smear some blood onto 16mm clear leader and then transfer it on the
sly at school, and then superimpose it over my footage in final cut.
Hopefully that will work. Anyway, I should be getting out that DVD to
you next week. It will have the films on it that you've already seen
when I had that tutorial with you my first semester. Also, did you see
that frameworks post about the website named after agnes varda
dedicated to facilitating the work of women filmmakers? It'd be cool
if you contributed to that... I think you'd have a lot to offer. You
certainly have informed and facilitated my practice greatly over the
years. I'll definitely be making it to that film salon. Hope you're
well. Take care!
