About the film:
Bugs, (74 mins. 2011-2015)
Written, Directed, Edited and Produced by Life of a Craphead (Amy Lam & Jon Mccurley)
Bugs—the debut feature film from performance artists Life of a Craphead—is a satire about a bug society and its most powerful family.
Featuring situations like a university lecture gone wrong and a failed SNL episode, Bugs presents the absurdity of life within a patriarchal society obsessed with success. The DIY film sets the Bug universe right in the middle of the real world, creating multiple layers of reality that interact with each other. Produced over 2011-2015 with a large cast and crew of artists and comedians.
Life of a Craphead will be in attendence and will participate in a short artist talk/ question and answer session followning the screening.
Doorcuts (5.5 mins, 2016)
Director, Editor, VFX: Zak Tatham
Exiting through a Doorcut is a cinch way to skip the middle-ground in travel. The traveler leaves their home though a door, she enters a door which enters a door, taking as many Doorcuts as possible. It may be transparent to access doors that fold space, linking alternate universes, but as the short-cuts are exploited hospitality closes an octo-edge door.
