A FABLE FOR FLEAS, by Steve Giordano
Winner of the First Annual San Jose State College Survival Faire film contest in 1970, this 3-minute animated film began as a story Alex Weiss wrote for his kids' nursery school newsletter. Babs Jackson did the cut-out art and I filmed it, one frame at a time. Cost was $10 - $6 for the film and $4 for processing. It brought in about $1,500 over the years in rentals. The Smothers Brothers TV show wanted to run it, but insisted the word "feces" be taken out. We said no and lost out on $3,000. Dumb. The day of the Survival Faire, students in the Humanities 160 class buried on campus a brand new, never run Ford Maverick (they pushed it from the dealership) as a statement on dead technology.
