After the success of two Pixelvision films I made in 1992, GLASS JAW (vimeo.com/21537966), and 1994, ORION CLIMBS, (vimeo.com/21482469) I made BRUTUS, PORTIA AND GILBERT in 1995. BPG was quite different from my other two films, and I did not think it would play as well as my other works in the same market. (It didn’t.) I thought it was lost until I found a degraded copy on VHS. That coincided with the first internet cat video festival. Thinking this media might have finally found an audience, I used the SD 1995 VHS copy as the backbone of this new piece – THIS IS NOT A CAT VIDEO (2013) - a look back on a time when there were few cat videos and no HD or internet, and ailurophilia was an unknown word.
