Flip About Flip

1990, super 8, 4 minutes

A loving tribute to comic genius Flip Wilson. Back before mini dv, making films was a long, arduous, expensive proposition. In reaction to that, I liked making very short films in between longer projects. The idea was that in order to keep the chops honed I would make smaller projects that could be shot in an afternoon on one or two reels of films, thus keeping the costs down. Flip is one of these endeavors. This film was shot in an afternoon with the assistance of Chris Enright handling all the interviews. All told we shot three rolls of film. I think the total cost for the film was $60, a shockingly low budget for the time.

Film Crew: Chris Enright & Alison Faith Levy.
