Institute of Design Student Films

March 29, 2013

I found an old version of my VHS want list in my e-mail. Here is the info for which I was looking:

Institute of Design Student Films (Students of Professor Larry Janiak, 1971-1985):
Reel 1: Yeah I once knew a germ / Harry Arnold — Color reel / Robert Peterson — Summertime / Bill Schneider — Send in the clouds / Kevin Clarke — Incredible goings on / David Wong — E.R.A. TV spot / Mare Brizie-Wells — Stretchmarks / Richard DuCasse.
Reel 2: Introduction. (Christopher Garland, 1974) — Assemblage (Mark Brendel, 1976) — One / Val Val-San — In no strange land / Rick Funcik — Whole world is watching / Claudine Stacknick — The Essence of Maya (John Follmer, 1972) — GC M.E.S.C./L.A.M.P. / George Eastman — Rocks / Steve Jones.
Reel 3: Colored Squares (Kyoji Nakano, 1982) — Zipatatta (Art Wise, 1973) — Hired Gun (Bob Peterson, 1973) — Sixty Years On (Ray L. Spence, — Hood Ornament (Mary Jo Field, 1979) — Pimentos / Lindsay Lochman- – American alternative / Priscilla Humay.

Reel 6: Color Creations by The Color Bunch (Judith Rothschild, 1985) — Neon (George Comminos, 1979) — Game ; Children’s Reflections (Linda Comminos, 1979) — Matter Doesn’t Matter (Jeff C. Marienthal, 1973) — Silent Thunder (John Follmer, 1973)

IMCPL’s collection was missing Reel 1, and Reel 3 was the one that was partially erased, so I never saw Pimento or American Alternative.

One Comment
  1. Indianapolis Public Library (formery Indianapolis-Marion County Public Library) no longer owns these. The only copy I’ve been able to verify still exists is in the Bauhaus in Weimar, Germany, which never leaves the building, and they cannot legally make copies.
