Runner (1981) Super 8, color & b/w, 17.5 min

Keywords: Art & Artists, Environment & Nature, Landscape & Architecture, Music, Structural

A film consisting primarily of rapid segments shot in and around New York City with original music and sound usually cut in equal length to each image. The principal subject of the film is New York street culture: birds, dogs, transportation, derelicts, pedestrians and seamy life, intercut with a very few fragments of nature, indoor and simple subjects. Each sound has been written as dialogue or collected from the radio or produced on synthesizer to accompany each image and establish attitude: amusement, amazement, contrast, bewilderment, humor, absurdity.

I Saw Where You Was Last Night (1984) Super 8, color, 13.5 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Art & Artists

A 14-minute Super 8mm film which extends the ranges of Creston's earlier works, especially RUNNER, Leonard Moltz, and Open 7 Days. In this film, each segment is accompanied by original dialogue and monologue which permit the viewer direct access to the artist's underlying rationale for voyeurism. The writing reflects an uncanny ear for street talk and gesture. It is spoken with nuance and inflection by seven artist-actors under Creston's direction.
