tENTATIVELY, a cONVENIENCE Features

(from late 1975e.v. to october, 2017e.v.)

(in order of most recent to oldest - with the exception of the HiTEC documents - which are organized together regardless of how they fit the overall chronology)

It's my impression that a "feature" is usually defined as a movie 70 minutes or longer. I've decided to designate any movie of mine 60 minutes or longer a "feature" & anything under 60 minutes a "short". Why? Maybe it's just because I don't know what term is used to describe 'mid-length' movies. In literature we have novellas in between short stories & novels but what's the movie equivalent? Is a 65 minute film a "long short"? Or a "long shot"? Is an 18 second movie a "short short"? Using this simple length criteria I've listed 143 features below.

HOWEVER, it's not that simple. Many of the movies listed have versions both an hour or longer & shorter versions. Usually, the shorter versions are the ones I consider to be best & I wouldn't even screen the longer versions (except to researchers). But, already, there's at least one exception: "Harps & Angles" - the shorter version is meant to be mainly used in 'performance' & the longer version is the one I would present as the documentary (or "quasi-documentary" as I often prefer). Then there are the features that are not meant to be presented as something to be witnessed alone. They're meant to be used in mixes ("concrete mixes" as I call them) as "usical material" or, more conventionally, "wallpaper". Even though the usical material listed here meets the length criteria I would still disqualify them because their full appreciation doesn't require their being witnessed in their entirety - excerpting from them in units less than an hour would be satisfactory. An even more obvious example of something further to be rejected from the list below are the loops & indefinite duration pieces. While these can certainly play for more than an hour this would just be a formal exercise of little or no value to me.

SO, I'll whittle the list down:

I'll remove 327. "WARNING: TV Suffocates the Senses like a Bag over the Head", 312. a. "Triple-S Variety Show - Orgone Cinema", 308. "watching YOU watching THE END OF TELEVISION",189. "Volunteers Collective", 155. "Official Tour/Ture - '92", 44. "The 8th International Neoist Apartment Festival", 34. "Apt 7", 13. "81 Apt" as having better short versions. I'll remove 230. "Automatic Pilot", 203. a. "Space Ballet" (Usical Material Version in 24 parts), 160. "Color Bars", 172. "El Departamento de Quizás Presenta: una Demostración de Soluciones de Rompecabezas", 147. "Concrete Mixing Usical Material Vaudeo #2", 146. "Concrete Mixing Usical Material Vaudeo #1", 139. "Teaser", 136. "Wallpaper Video", 133. "One Word per Person Party", & 37. "Subtitles (analysis projector transfer of 16mm to 1/2" VHS cassette version)" {version 1} as "usical material". I'll remove 28. "Exquisite Corpse", 14. "Silent Speed", 4. "Ghost* [..]", & 3. "Mike Film" as loops or indefinite duration pieces in which the concept of "feature" is inappropriate. That leaves 122 features.

Furthermore, there's the whole selection of HiTEC documents: Some of these are more highly edited than others - it's possible that they'd be of substantial interest to enthusiasts of experimental (M)Usic. However, they're primarily intended to be interim documents to preserve this history - it's my hope to make a very long movie that edits all the HiTEC footage together someday. Given that as of the date of this writing there's something close to 80 hrs of raw footage this is a very daunting task. For the moment, I'll eliminate ALL of these but the exemplary 301. "HiTEC 045 'Full' Group", 309. "HiTEC 051 - New Hazlett Theater", 330. a. "The End of Television", 334 b. "HiTEC @ the VAF", & 350 a. "Infinite Monkey Theorem". That's 43 HiTEC features minus my 5 favorites of those = 38 to be subtracted here. That leaves 84 features.

But why stop there? Some of the features are edits sequencing shorts together with the occasional segue element. When these can be experienced satisfactorily in sections because they are more anthologies than they are continuous pieces then they too can be eliminated (although we're getting on shakier ground here with something like 178. "FILMSTRIPS" which is highly edited to work together as a single piece). An EXCEPTION would be 215. "Hibonsa o osoleluna! "Heibon" ga omae o Dame m sulumaeni" ("Kill Normality Before It Kills You") which I think is best experienced as a feature (even though the shorts within it are often presented separately). This criteria pulls out 260. "IMP ACTIVISM 7", 247. "IMP ACTIVISM #6", 212. "IMP ACTIVISM #2", 201. "IMP ACTIVISM #1", 178. "FILMSTRIPS", 157. "2 Yrs of "Official" History" / ""Official" Thistory", & 68. "An Incomplete History of APT Festivals". That reduces the features total to 77!

What the fuck! Let's get even more severe, shall we? (Just who am I addressing, anyway?) Let's cut out the features that are as long as they are because they're documentaries of events that try to be inclusive even though their inclusiveness is unlikely to be of any interest to anyone other than the participants. In other words, features that I have no intention of screening. Exceptions here (even though they could be objected to as being just as tediously 'comprehensive' as everything I'm cutting otherwise) are 365. "Innisfree Reading" & 214. "Circumsubstantial Playing & Blindfolded Tourism" ( for this latter because I think I made a pretty good edit). Whacked out are 67. "Ultimatum II", 58. "Not So Private Life (1st edit)", 38. "t he Telectropheremoanin'quinquennial", 33. "14BX Sub-Par/Con", & 12. "Attempt to Undermine Reality Maintenance Traps". Originally, I whacked out 117. "I Plagiarized This Title From Outer Space Junk Mail" but then I made the "b" version so now that stays in. That makes a new total of 72 features - but, by now, the standards are getting pretty dodgy.

DODGY or not, I will now eliminate further! 63. "Easter Island Bunny Edit" was meant to be used in 'performance' (& the variations can be rejected by the previous paragraph's 'rules'). I might as well also eliminate 377. "mm 22", 391. "mm 37 - musical saw", 427. a. "mm 62 presents: CLARINET", 428. a. "mm 63 presents: HARMONICA", & 444. "mm 69: Special Packaging" even though I actually quite like them just because if I were to not screen all of the 21 mm features so far I might leave those 5 out.. I also reject the "Neil Feather & tENTATIVELY, a cONVENIENCE at the NorMill" one - not because I don't like the content but because the camerawork was done by an inexperienced cameraperson & it's a bit too insufferably shakey. Might was well reject 474. "Slow-Bowling with the Gods" because it's basically a wallpeper movie. That leaves:

64 SELECTED FEATURES

HiTEC documents:

- HiTEC (Histrionic Thought Experiment Cooperative) was originally proposed as "Sonic Aughts Union" by tENTATIVELY, a cONVENIENCE after a May '08 gig in a library by t,ac; Margaret Cox; Rick Gribenas; & Steve Boyle. When "Sonic Aughts Union" failed to materialize as cONVENIENCE originally imagined, it transformed into HiTEC & into more orchestral dimensions. Its 1st rehearsal was on July 14, 2008. In an attempt to document every rehearsal, mini-dv has been shot, sometimes w/ 2 cameras, sometimes w/ the camera(s) only on (a) tripod(s), sometimes w/ camera operators - & explanatory titles have been added. The numbers in the title represent the number of the rehearsal & the letters represent the sub-group of HiTEC that was rehearsing. 'Full' groups are designated as such. The order they're presented in here is an approximate recreation of the order in wch they were made.

My Attempt to be Recognized by the Guiness World Records as the Maker of the Most Feature-Length Movies

I applied to the Guinness World Records on October 20, 2012 for "most feature-length movies" & got the following (edited) reply:

*******************************************

Subject: Thank you for your record application

THIS IS ONLY FOR YOUR REFERENCE

Dear Mr TENTATIVELY, A cONVENIENCE,

We are pleased to inform you that your record application has been transferred to our internal system.

You do not need to do anything further at this stage.

We will process your claim and give you an answer to your application in approximately four-six (4-6) weeks.

At Guinness World Records, we take great care to evaluate every claim we receive. Before we accept or reject a new record proposal, we always carry out claim-specific research, which may require the expertise of external consultants.

*******************************************

This was followed 3 & 1/2 months later by this rejection:

Dear Mr TENTATIVELY, A CONVENIENCE,

Thank you for sending us the details of your recent record attempt for 'most feature-length movies'. We are afraid to say that we are unable to accept this as a Guinness World Record.

Unfortunately, we do already have a record for this category and what you have achieved does not better this. The current world record is 110. Please feel free to contact us again if you exceed this achievement.

*******************************************

On January 9, 2015 I revised my application by informing Guinness that I had now exceeded the record of 110 features that they had previously informed me of. On February 3, 2015, I got their 2nd rejection - not based on the record this time but on bureaucratic procedure. I had actually followed their procedure exactly & correctly so I distrust their response. Their procedure is ONLY "proactive".

*******************************************

03 February 2015 13:17

Thank you for your message, However Guinness World Records is both an arbiter and a curator of world records. Whilst thousands of records are applied for proactively from the public every year, a vast number of superlative facts are sourced from expert consultants and institutions in order to provide a more complete snapshot of the world we live in. We do not invite proactive applications for records such as the one you are proposing.  

*******************************************

& here's MY reply to that:  

*******************************************

"Thank you for your reply.  I'm sure the number of applicants to you is overwhelming.  The unfortunate thing about outsourcing research for superlative facts is that the 'experts' are often region & circuit -centric.  In other words, they only know about records established in conventional ways.  As such, extraordinary & unconventional people such as myself are excluded on grounds irrelevant to the actual record-breaking.  Receiving public recognition for my accomplishments is not only something I deserve, it's also something that my continued survival is potentially dependent on.  As such, it's important for me to be proactive."

*******************************************

One friend of mine informed me that the Spanish exploitation filmmaker, Jesus Franco, who lived to be almost 83 years old, made something like170 features (I can't find the exact number I decided on at the moment). Given that I've currently made 412 movies total (as of August 9, 2015) in the last 40 years & that 116 of those are features, I think it's possible that I've already exceeded Franco in sum total of movie time & that if I live another 22 years I'll probably exceed his feature record if I continue at this rate.

Regardless, Guiness's rejection was a big disappointment to me insofar as I'm desperately trying to survive financially & feel that such international recognition would go a long way to making it easier for me to screen these movies & to get paid for doing so. As it currently stands, I'll probably die before I get such recognition.
