I somehow missed this during a much more busy than usual year… V. Vale has recently launched a series of 4″x6″ pocket book interview volumes – in the format of the 33 1/3 series – featuring his own interviews with icons of the counterculture and the like. I’m most eager to sit back with the edition featuring the great underground filmmaker George Kuchar – who left us a little over two years ago. “George Kuchar shares his inner-workings. PLUS interview with Kuchar star, Marion Eaton, lists, and conversations.” Contains the most thorough film/videography of his work ever, as well. The book is just 9.99 direct from the publisher, or slightly more from Amazon, if that’s where you prefer to go.

George Kuchar – a beacon for John Waters, Christopher Coppola and countless students — shares his insights on learning to make films on zero budgets. He talks about early 8mm filmmaking and his inspirations: Hitchcock, Roger Corman, & his aunt who loaned he and his brother the camera. Interviewer: V. Vale.
