Hey all, Jim Granato has curated a show of super8 films from San Fran at the Echo Park Film Center. The center piece is an ongoing exquisite corpse presented with live music; the curated first half includes a group of short pieces, including the ever-sublime Paul Clipson (and one by me and Natalija Vekic!)

Thursday, June 10 – SAN FRANCISCO EXQUISITE CORPSE & INTIMATE OBSERVATIONS – 8PMSuper 8 films from San Francisco! Intimate Observations is a collection of moving collages, left-field narrative and cinema vérité committed to the confines of small gauge celluloid. These new and classic experimental & narrative works capture candid situations, mundane objects and familiar landscapes but reveal something extraordinary about them. SF Bay Area filmmakers include Phoebe Tooke, Christian Bruno & Natalija Vekic, Paul Clipson, Daniel Gorrell, Jim Granato, Miles Montalbano, Douglas Schultz and "King of Super 8" Danny Plotnick. The impetus for the Exquisite Corpse Films follows from the original surrealist construct presented by Andre Breton in 1920. Each film was created using a 3 minute cartridge of Kodachrome super 8 film and was assigned a topic chosen by the group, with (6) 30 second opportunities to describe the subject. The filmmakers edited their contributions 'in camera' and the films are presented as they were shot. The SF Equisite Corpse S8 group are made up of local artists from a variety of arts backgrounds; painting, photography, sculpture, performance art, and film participated in the making of these films, in many cases with limited film experience. In a direct sense the films are experiments in a visual narrative and provide alternative ideas about the subject. In an indirect sense these films capture a moment in San Francisco and the lives of those participating in the films. Live music by Don Black of GHIANT and Eric McCann of the New Amsterdams will be featured to score the 2nd half of the show, SF Exquisite Corpse!!
