About this title:

Synopsis: A humorous collection of autobiographical literary low-browsing, low-budget filmmaking philosophy, and tips by the legendary twin, underground filmmakers George and Mike Kuchar; a reflection on their flickering universe and the famous and infamous who drop into it from time-to-time. Original illustrations by Mike and George Kuchar and a selection of never-before-seen photos. Includes filmography, bibliography and index.

From the Publisher: For over three decades the irrepressible twin, underground filmmakers George and Mike Kuchar have been making some of the funniest films in the US—lusty, good-humored spoofs of Hollywood "B" films and "documentaries." Key figures in the alternative filmmaking of the '60s, the legendary Kuchar brothers have influenced generations of independent filmmakers (John Waters and Roger Vadim come to mind). While barely in their teens, the Kuchars began working with 8mm film, producing, directing, and starring in their own epics. Continuing true to their vision, they moved to 16mm. When film became too expensive, the Kuchar brothers began pushing video to outrageous limits. Here is what other people say about the Kuchars and "reflections from a cinematic cesspool."
