Index | Date Movies : Clips & Montages

I began 2018 by posting a clip from a single film that's set on that particular date. Click on the "headline" beside the dates below to view those.

But the main focus of this project has been the creation of much more elaborate montages for specific days (or months) of the year - click on "MONTAGE" (or "montage") below for the mashup created for that date. Most feature all the movie clips I could find that take place on (or reference) a particular date.

There are also month-at-a-time montages (in all caps) where each date is represented by a single film clip.

I've also made a few other montages with other ideas, such as the one I created about lawyers for my daughter's law school graduation. They're listed at the bottom.

I've begun conversation with a local gallery about a 12-hour installation version of the piece that would begin at noon with January 1 and move through the year, one hour per month, culminating with December 31 at midnight, then continuing with January 1 at the stroke of midnight. I'll let you know how that comes along.

Most of these videos were created for my family members and movie friends; a few were commissioned by people for their friends or family. Endless thanks to John Drew, Darrel Manson, Evan Cogswell and other A&Fers, as well as folks like John Cody, Curtis Reed, Rosie Perera, Mel Kirby, Peter Chattaway, Peter Norman, dianne Reed, Paul Kerensa and others for their contributions.

NT Guilty: "Do you need a good lawyer?" 
My magnum opus, for my daughter Katie's law school grad

a fine watch: the days and hours of the jackal  the temporal preoccupations of a French masterpiece

thirteen days of glory  a whimsical invention on a couple incidents in American history
