Happy New Year!!!
The Blackchair Collection, a new DVD catalogue and label has some great
experimental work now available on DVD through its online catalogue viewable
Some of our featured titles:
1. Spectres of the Spectrum by Craig Baldwin
Agitprop genius Craig Baldwin, director of TRIBULATION 99 and SONIC OUTLAWS,
returns with his grandest work to date! SPECTRES OF THE SPECTRUM plunders
Baldwin's treasure trove of early television shows, industrial and
educational films, Hollywood movies, advertisements and cartoons, combining
these with live-action footage, no-budget special effects, and relentless
narration to generate a wholly original paranoid science-fiction epic.
2. Experiments in Terror - Abstract & Experimental Horror curated by Noel
As if by some irresistable compulsion to witness the mortification of the
flesh, EXPERIMENTS IN TERROR perversely unearths a celluloid sarcophagus of
horrible, horrible beauty...a phantasmagoria of the uncanny, the dreadful,
and the macabre...
3. Synesthetics - 9 Short Films by Kasumi
An artist that embodies all that the microcinema can offer and more.
