Below: In 2011, I introduced myself to Mark Pauline of Survival Research Laboratories…I’ve been a fan since seeing a show in 1989. He subsequently asked if I would be interested in re-editing, for the Web, a 17-minute archival video of a show that SRL presented in San Francisco in 1994. Here is my 7-minute re-edit of the DOOM show:

Below: Here is my March 2012 edit of Survival Research Laboratories LIVE at the 2002 Webby Awards, San Francisco: (Thanks to Mark Pauline.) “This is a short show we staged in connection with the 2002 Webby Awards show in SF, held at the Legion of Honor. Highlights include 55 gallons of pink gack, Grey Leyh’s shocking Tesla Coil, and a really cool machine wrestling scene. This show also proves once and for all, (well, at least once…) that SRL doesn’t always create mayhem at their shows. Edited By Steve Bage. Video shot by Dave Scardina and Chris Seguine.” – Mark Pauline

Below: This project for John Anderson’s art presented unique challenges. The source material was given to me as a DVD, wherein there was a long, single-shot interview with the artist, and a bit of footage shot by the interviewers in his studio. I wanted to get to the essence of the artist, and so I adopted a process of extraction – of audio clips from the interview, and still frames from the studio video. It was the perfect music – composed and performed by Marie Carbone – that imbued the piece with breath of its own.
