ELYSIAN PARK I and II were made in The Summer of Love, 1967. Elysian Park I was shot at three different speeds: fast, normal and slow. (Those were the settings on the camera.) A three and a half minute roll of film was shot, then rewound and shot twice more, thus the overlapping effect. Vastly different apertures and filters were used in each film. ELYSIAN PARK I and II were influenced by the artist/filmmaker Bruce Conner as well as the experimental filmmaker Stan Brakhage.
