Underground Film Links: September 11, 2011
This week’s links is dedicated to George Kuchar who tragically passed away this week. Most of the links are, of course, about him:
- The San Francisco Art Institute, where George taught and inspired so many future filmmakers for so many years, offers up a touching remembrance.
- The San Francisco Chronicle has an official obituary.
- As does the New York Times.
- Aaron Zeghers, who has done an admirable job taking over Cineflyer, has a very nice article on George, who visited Winnipeg last year for the WNDX festival.
- ArtInfo has a very long piece.
- Andy Ditzler of the Film Love screening series in Atlanta offers two inspiring quotes from his late friend.
- Cinemad has two very nice pictures of George. (One of which I stole for this post that you see above.)
- Making Light of It posted a scan of an old Film Culture interview with George and his brother Mike, plus a scan from the book Expanded Cinema about Jordan Belson, who also passed away this week.
- In some other news, Electric Sheep has some thoughts on this year’s Raindance lineup.
- Scribble Junkies held a poll to find out who the greatest animators in history are. Here’s the results.
- CineSource Magazine has hired filmmaker Waylon Bacon to draw a regular comic strip about filmmaking. The first installment covers one of the worst crimes to ever be committed on a film set.
- Finally, this may be very old news, but it’s new to me: The Film Makers Cooperative has revamped their website and it looks pretty snazzy. Built on WordPress, of course.
