10-1-10: Maryland Morning Screen Test Presents Skizz Cyzyk

September 30, 2010 at 5:07 pm Leave a comment

On the Maryland Morning Screen Test, we talk with Maryland filmmakers about their work, and we screen their films in front of an audience at the Windup Space.

Skizz Cyzyk was our featured filmmaker for September. Skizz has been an important presence behind area cameras, projectors, drums and modified stringed instruments since the early 80s.  You may have seen his underground animations and documentaries. You may have heard his rock and roll. You may have seen films at Mansion Theatre, MicroCineFest and the Maryland Film Festival, all of which bear Skizz’s imprint.

This is an excerpt from Tom Hall’s conversation with Skizz about filmmaking, recorded Wednesday night at The Windup Space just before we screened some of his work, including a trailer for Hit and Stay, a documentary he’s making with Joe Tropea about the legacy of the Catonsville Nine, and a world premiere of his bizarrely animated video for Baltimore band The Jennifers.

All photographs by Christopher Moore. Please check out his other work, too.

Also to check out: the band Lands and Peoples, whose people Caleb Moore designed our snazzy Screen Test poster.
