Crocker, Keith ARTFUL VISCERA - An Exploration of the Italian Horror film 1960 through 1980 History,
Media- Film,
Performing Arts- Other
The Italians reinvented the horror film between 1960 and 1980. Generally, the genre was frowned upon by the fascist movement of the 1930's, but once the war ended and Italy had a chance to get back on their feet, they ended up making up for lost time by producing some of the most frightening films ever to grace a movie theater screen. From the trend setting work of directors like Mario Bava (Black Sunday) to the misanthropic nightmares of Lucio Fulci (Zombie), Italian horror films continue to place their mark on the current crop of American made nightmare films. Join me for the ultimate history lesson on European trash cinema. Comes complete with a vintage memorabilia presentation plus a 16mm showing of a digest version of Horror Castle (1963). This program would be very popular with your younger teenage and college years patrons.

Clive, Young, Homemade Hollywood: The Rise of Fan Films Media- Film,
Media- Video,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Fan films are a new phenomenon in today's popular culture. Regular people are creating their own flicks based on their favorite movies, books, TV shows and more, using video cameras and computers to create complex, unique films. Many fan films are now high-quality efforts, sometimes costing as much as $30,000 to produce!

This program introduces audiences to some of the best fan films around, featuring Batman, Harry Potter, Superman, The Matrix, Snoopy, Darth Vader and more of the world's most famous characters.

I am the author of the first book about fan films, Homemade Hollywood (Continuum, 2008) and run the daily fan film blog, FanCinemaToday.com, so basically I'm the leading expert on this unusual form of underground filmmaking.
