paul toth short film knotted
Dec 2007: Paul A. Toth's "Knotted" a film by Tom Shell Adapted from Paul A. Toth's short story "Necktime"      
This short-film features nearly no dialogue as a waiter and a suit take-up ground where Faulkner left off, revealing layers of personality and self-talk we each experience, but rarely ever express. Our literary feature of Paul's works includes the script. Be sure to check the script out after you watch the film.

f keith wahle video: secrets

When asked to write this brief introduction for “La Société du spectacle”, I started to FEEL like Louis Armstrong’s jibe about jazz- “Brother, if you don’t get it, there ain’t no way I can explain it to you…”. I thought about staggering down the Rue des Ecoles in Paris, missing a screening of “Société…” at the Cinéma le Champo, and settling for seeing Debords “In Girum…” instead. I wanted to remind myself that the spectacle is not a collection of images... [Winterhalter review continues] October 2007: Un Chien Andalou
Salvador Dali and Luis Buñuel collaborated to create this 1929 masterpiece of silent film.  In a time when people were not accustomed to imagery of a man's hands on a woman's breasts, or, an eye cut with a razor, this work horrified audiences, and has been alluded to in an endless list of later film makers.
May film feature: F. Keith Wahle and Colleen McCarty performing "Secrets"

"...This current project - the making of a woodcut motion picture - was arrived at by the wish to approach the woodcuts in a more direct manner - by using the woodcuts themselves to fabricate the continued work...Jack refers to the mannequin inside of the toy called a Jack in the Box. He is chosen by a puchinello-like god figure as an appropriate companion for Eve. Jack cajoles Eve away from the steadfast, but doltish Adam. Jack and Eve travel down the Vulgar River to Nobotown, where they put on a performance in The Theater of the Western Regions. Disaster ensues...I have proceeded to make these parts into the sets, objects, and characters of the movie. They move by means of digital photography and motion graphics software that allows me to manipulate two dimensional objects in three dimensional space - compositing many layers of imagery to make up each scene..."
