The Leap


THE LEAP is impressive for its mixture of pure video space with representational filmic space. Thus an ordinary man seems to interact physically with videographic apparitions, moving in and out of different time space realities, fluctuating between the physical and metaphysical with each stride of his leap toward freedom . . ." --Gene Youngblood

". . . a vividly visual abstraction set to electronic music (by Man Meyer) which commits chaos and absurdity to a sense of resolution . . . a highly deserving prize winner." --Norman K. Dorn

"The escape from the confines of the past by a release of inner energy." --Tom DeWitt
