Andy Warhol

Originally uploaded by ● Frio
As early as the time of Andy's initial fame with his silkscreens, He told interviewers he was leaving painting and going to be a filmmaker. He said that before he even had any technical know-how. The Screen tests were a big part of Andy's film experimentation days.
The book called Screen Tests by Callie Angel is a comprehensive work of this.
Andy's films were a big hit in the NY underground film scene---Jonas Mekas theatre.
And the Danny Williams film--the Velvet Underground light show days. Exploding Plastic Inevitable.
