INKY BINKY FILMS are short pieces, shot and often but not always cut on location.
Revitalized in 2013 with the Beach Bum with a Camera project.
I produced and directed these films but often had help, inspiration, and input from various collaborators. After seeing a few of these films Lynda Barry suggested the series title. I thank her very much for that.
I began making shorts many years ago, especially when I was working on media activism projects or studying in Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, the Philippines or French Polynesia. In the beginning Inky Binky films were shot in S-8 or 16mm film but always edited in video. These days I primarily but not exclusively shoot in digital formats. I also made a series called “Sal’s Homemade Films” for special occasions and about friends or beloved pets. Eventually, I will also include some of these tidbits on this site.
Also, visit my website to view or read about other projects and longer films that I have been producing since 1978.
