Thought this photo came out pretty well, so I figured I'd share it here. This is a shot of a section of the 16mm original for Fred Worden's film Insomnia (1981). Fred made this film entirely by punching holes into black leader. I can only assume that the title perhaps refers to the sleepless nights during which I imagine Fred made this sucker. Talk about an economical film - after punching the holes (2 different sizes, I think), he struck a 7361 reversal print, and there it was: a movie.
