Further information

"...taped some vintage silent mutt and jeff and felix bits in a basement in victoria: used hi-8 for that...

...contact-printed some words and images from 35 mm to 35 mm which was transferred to vhs cause i do not have 35 mm viewing capabilties...


...took the raw material to the flyer-toaster machinery at brad's...

...dialed up a few different styles of the letter U, since this originally was part of Montreal-based Videographe's alphabet tape...

...edited it all together into what might be called a kind of eye-candy..."
