Flick Out
Andrew Harmon
Series Description

Originally aired on May 22, 1968 as a four and a half hour marathon showcasing young filmmakers. Hosted by Standish Lawder, Yale University film professor, “Flick Out” gave viewers the chance to watch some of the most creative films being produced at that time. It included short documentaries, film essays, animated cartoons and full-length features that illuminated the art of film.

Beginning in July 1968, “Flickout” became a weekly half-hour series, produced by Henry Morgenthau, showing experimental films from both new, young filmmakers, and established craftsmen. Whenever possible Morgenthau interviews the filmmaker whose work is being shown. Series release date: 5/22/1968

Program Description

A film devoted to the works of Andrew Harmon, a (then) 23 year old graduate of Brandeis. The films included are “The Virtuoso” in color , which uses the tracks and some ancient equipment of the B & M railroad to make a bizarre and humorous surrealistic statement. “An Interview With Spencer Lynch” was part of a film segment for a play called “Four” put on by Brandeis last year (1968). It is an improvised dramatization of a recording session made to resemble a documentary of a tired and boozy musician at the exhausted end of a taping session. The final film was made for the Cardigan Mountain School in New Hampshire as a public relations film.
