Simon Tarr made his first movie at the age of eight. The strip of film was fashioned from sandwich bags taped together, with spaceships drawn on it. The projector was a shoebox with a lamp in it, the lens was a magnifying glass on the end of a toilet paper tube. The film premiered on the wall of his bedroom, where the film melted after a few seconds.
Since then, his films have been screened on every continent (yes, even Antarctica) in hundreds of film festivals. Professor Tarr teaches cinema production at Ithaca College. He is Chair of the Board of Directors of the Association of Independent Video and Filmmakers, and is a Trustee of the University Film and Video Foundation. He has just released his first feature film, RUBICON.Review:
RECOMMENDED: This collection of shorts reveals Simon Tarr as an inventive filmmaker of great range... dry humor... visually arresting! -- Educational Media Reviews, Feb. 6, 2004
