“Leader” film by X-PRESSDecember 16, 2015

O.K. I forgot to add this film to my X-PRESS Revisited section. This is probably the most extensive project we collaborated on. Mike Horvath and I wrote, produced and performed this film. John McClintock shot all the footage in 16mm film that was ‘pushed’. This ‘pushing’ of the exposure of the film made it very grainy and other-worldly. Of course, my process of compressing it down to video settings that could be streamed, increased the low resolution of the images. Mike Sanders edited it and added the audio. We finally put it all together and finished it in 1990 even though it was shot much earlier. It is approximately 11.5 minutes long.

Following is the film:
