Director and His Actor Look at Footage Showing Preparations for an Unmade Film, The (1968) 16mm, color, 15 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Films about Film, Media

"After an initial shot which shows them checking the projector and testing the sound level, the director and his actor look at four sections of exactly organized film that document preliminary work for a film that (it is evident) they do not intend to make. The first section shows them taking stills for a photographic storyboard; the projected film depicts someone in the act of taking photographs. The second section shows the director developing the negatives that he and the actor took. The third section shows the director examining his photographs, then arranging them in the storyboard in the order he took them in; the photographs are then consecutively shown in close-up. The fourth section shows the actor examining his photographs, then arranging them in the same order he took them in; the photographs are then consecutively shown in close-up." --M. F.
