- Ron Finley
- 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
An examination of the art of WGBH’s prize winning animator Ron Finley. In addition to a brief collection of animations which demonstrate the variety of his invention in opening sequences, promos, etc., Finley also shows several self-contained sequences. Using the music of Bob Dylan, he manipulates stock newsreel footage in a film essay which expresses the sense of rebellion of the 60’s. He teams the music of the Beatles with animation to suggest the pop culture of the decade, and in a cartoon and videotape sequence, he gives us a light and bright capsule history of the Modern Jazz Quartet.
