So, back to the films I made when the Henceblog was down, and we’re starting up again with “No!” a psychedelic trip through corgis and death. Here’s the story: I had been accumulating all kinds of footage for experimental pieces, some of them I was planning on using for the next installment of The Tape and fell to the wayside when The Tape never came, some were going to be ways to experiment with my new camera that eventually fell aside, and at least one was for a film that we had begun shooting but ran in to equipment failure that made it impossible to finish the project. At any rate, right before I left Santa Fe I had about five film projects that were never going to be made. Rather than leave them in this state, I decided instead to combine all of these films together into one film, and the result is below.
Despite the scattered approach to this film, I think it’s turned out surprisingly well. Firstly, I’m glad that even though this was composed of a lot of more visual works there’s still a very coherent story to the piece. Aside from this, I’m happy with what story came out, as it’s one about a dog that seems to be cast out of society only to become able to destroy both man and God with at least two victims. I’m very happy with the psychedelic imagery the video feedback gave me, and I’m happy with the effect that all of the sounds I got from driving through a dust storm gave me. Overall, it’s an oddly atmospheric film, and I also think we can all agree that Taco God will be missed.
