Cut Shorts: Short Films & Music Videos by David Markey from 1974-2004 (DVD)

David Markey

DVD Currently unavailable


This compilation represents 30 years of work (and life) from Los Angeles native independent filmmaker David Markey. From his beginnings as a pre-teen experimental film auteur to his music videos for major labels, Cut Shorts displays Markey's unique and askewed view. Certain masks, wigs and actors appear throughout. Markey employs a frenetic Documentary-style approach mixed with punk fiction on the dime (literally). Economic constrains don't deter Dave's creativity, but provide an aesthetic that weaves these 20 disparate pieces together. Markey feverishly produced these backyard films much like the Do-It-Yourself attitude found in punk zines and bands. The grit and darkness resonate as much as the wit and cynicism, yielding a twisted sense of humor often at the expense of American Pop Culture.
