Basic Film Terms: A Visual Dictionary (1970)

November 12th, 2012 by Anne Richardson · 5 Comments · 1970's, Oregon director, Oregon film, Oregon film new definition, Oregon writer

Sheldon Renan made the fifteen minute educational short, Basic Film Terms: A Visual Dictionary, as a follow up to his 1967 book An Introduction to the American Underground Film: A Unique, Fully Illustrated Handbook To The Art Of Underground Film And Their Makers.

I believe Basic Film Terms is a lost film.

(Late breaking development – an eagle eyed reader found some copies! )

(Even later breaking development – a resourceful reader found copies for sale, see comments below.)

I hereby claim it as an Oregon film on the basis of the contribution of writer-director Sheldon Renan.

    Perhaps not. Three libraries in the Northwest appear to have copies on film: http://uolibraries.worldcat.org/oclc/3088409
