Recipes for Disaster: A Handcrafted Film Cookbooklet (an excerpt)

edited by Helen Hill

(Click here for printer-friendly version)


This is a collection of handcrafted film recipes from fellow experimental filmmakers, mostly from Canada but also from all over. These generous folks donated their blueprints, ideas and technical information for only a free copy of the collection and a chance to read everyone else's contributions. Thank you to all these fine filmmakers.

These recipes were collected by Helen Hill and this booklet was funded by and launched at the 2001 SpliceThis! super-8 Film Festival in Toronto, Onatrio, Canada. Below are a few excerpts from this book.
