Judy's Face (1970) 16mm, black and white, 20 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Structural

Originally filmed in 8mm and then enlarged to 16mm size. One continuous 'shot' divided into two nearly equal sections; each section duplicated 3 times and then combined in an arithmetic progression of alternating order separated with varying lengths of clear and opaque leader. Taking a random section and breaking it down into its base components and then restructuring the parts into a new whole (:comprehension). --M. L.

Bebe's Elbow (1972) 16mm, color, 16 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Personal / Diary / Journal

Filmed in Feb. 1972 in Johnson City, N. Y. at Jon's apartment. I came to visit for the weekend with the intent of making this film. Jon and I lugged equipment early Saturday morning and we ended up shooting late in the evening due to technical difficulties and other problems. Jon purchased the film stock and gave much needed technical assistance. Bebe liked the idea of the film and now her elbow is preserved for posterity on celluloid. For more than a year I had only the original print to project because of the lack of funds to invest for duplicate prints; thanks to Ken, I got the 'bread' to finally have a print made. --M. L.

A single 100 ft. roll of 16mm B&W film shot at the zoo last October, 1972. Six months later I soaked the processed film in clorox bleach and had it loop-printed four times with a length of black opaque leader between each print. --M. L.
