1. One of cinema's great craftsmen, Saul Bass is a name you may not recognize, but you no doubt know his work- particularly his striking, minimalist title sequences. Let's dive into the philosophy of his work and see what we can learn, and how we can apply it to other areas of filmmaking.

    “The surf filmmaker became more than a sports filmmaker; he became an artist capable of revealing truths about life that we otherwise overlook or take for granted.” — Morning of the Earth film editor Albie Thoms

    Come celebrate the first-ever U.S. soundtrack release from the 1972 surf classic Morning of the Earth, with our friends at Anthology Recordings! Filmed by Australian helmer Alby Falzon, this fantasy of surfers living in unspoiled lands and playing in nature’s ocean is awash with powerful Aussie folk/rock by the likes of Tamam Shud, John J. Francis, Brian Cadd and G. Wayne Thomas. Presented without narration, title cards or identification of the surfers involved, Morning of the Earth is a powerful ecological statement, and one of the grooviest sporting artefacts of its era. Copies of Anthology Recordings’ reissue LP will be available at the screening — plus, DJ Frosty (dublab) will be here to spin tunes before and after the show!
    Dir. Albert Falzon, 1971, 16mm, 79 min. (Archival print courtesy of the National Film & Sound Archive, Australia)

    Of course.
    Can we make a concert here?

    This video was made with cheap cameras, a lot of beer, and some great people who welcomed us and the music.

    Live concert audio was recorded into a laptop. Bajzel is a one-man-band. The multi-instrument sound is achieved by looping his guitar and effects while cueing beats from the same pedal array. N

    music - Bajzel
    Film - Muzeum (Matthew Schroeder)

    Special thanks:
    Anita and her friends

    song is "Happy Love" from the album "Mała Wulgaria" on Mystic label.
