Cheryl's Film (1974) Super 8, black and white, 4.25 min

Genre: Experimental

"The film's allusive, concentrated imagery portrays a disturbing dream world of inner turmoil. Within this archetypal world, Eros struggles for incarnation in the face taboo. The terror of the confrontation releases the demonic power of Thanatos. The expression of this conflict reveals sexuality as both consumation and consumed." --Christopher M. Aanstoos, West Georgia College

Illumine (1974) Super 8, color, 2.5 min

Genre: Experimental

"This film evokes resonances of the transcendent or spiritual dimension of existance. These ancient sacred echoes call forth an ardruous yet hopeful journey through dim opacity toward the holy. Answering this call allows a transfiguration of the finite through reflexive meditation upon the infinite." --Christopher M. Aanstoos, West Georgia College

Pace Falling Film (1974) Super 8, black and white, 1.5 min

Genre: Experimental

"The film overrides the viewer's normal information accepting mechanisms. Sometimes the information rate is very high, overloading one's capacity to process the information, causing the viewer to focus in order not to become disorientated. Sometimes the rate is very slow, so one must look more deeply into the image or get bored. These information rates are played back and forth against one another causing the visual system to override the cognitive system. One is forced to watch what the filmmaker wants one to see." --Dr. Matthew Yuschik, University of South california

Three By Film, The (1974) 16mm, black and white, .5 min

Genre: Experimental

"Not anti-intellectual but definitely not the representation of a thought. The film eludes an exhaustive probe and cripples one's attempt to talk about it while at the same time it rivets one's attention and demands an intelligent interpretation." --Frederick J. Wertz, Hunter College

Actor Talk (1975) 16mm, black and white, 10.25 min

Genre: Experimental

"Discreet and continuous changes take place between the visual images presented in this film. Two different cognitive processes are called upon and the viewer experiences a contrast in the ways in which he interprets the information being presented. Because of a pulsating nature of the image in the film, a cadence is set up which affects the viewer's internal tempo. This effect persists even after the film ends." --Dr. Matthew Yuschik, University of South California

Bauble (1975) Super 8, color & b/w, 15.25 min

Genre: Experimental

With this in mind, I presumed it valid to set out to make an ugly film. --S. K. K. "One must know why an art work is aesthetically ugly, and, in order to know why, one must be thoroughly and profoundly cognizant of aesthetic form and organization." --Willard Huntington Wright, "The Creative Will"

John Paskiewicz Portrait Film, The (1975) Super 8, black and white, 2 min

Genre: Experimental

"A brutal film portrait attuned to the implicit. It dwells on things so fleeting they're usually over-looked. Somehow the film makes their meaning available to the intellect, but in a mute, stark way." --Frederick J. Wertz, Hunter College
