              This is a montage of 16mm footage that I put together for my fellow classmates in the CW Post Film Department in 1973. Everything in here was a mistake- It was my introduction to the happy accident.

                  As I became more and more familiar with my family's home movies I began to synthesize them into my own films- my own shards. My favorite kind of film shard to make is an opening sequence. …
