His films include Tom, Tom, The Piper's Son, Blonde Cobra, Perfect Film, and Star Spangled To Death. He is the founder of Millennium Film Workshop. He coined the term "paracinema," referring to cinematic experiences outside of the experiences provided by standard cinema technology. His Nervous System projections use multiple projectors and variable frame-rates to create a unique cinematic experience.
