About the Founding of the S.P.C.S.M.E.F.

Having heard Stan Brakhage speak about his hypnogogic vision & having heard him mention that brine shrimp were used in the making of some of his films & having then seen some recent examples, a few people were horrified to have not seen any disclaimer announcing that "No Sea Monkeys were Harmed in the Making of This Film". It's a well-known fact that certain paints used in hand-painting celluloid can lead to bladder cancer. This cancer in brine shrimp is particularly harsh since problems with voiding water in sea creatures can lead to their DROWNING - an especially horrible death! Imagine suffocating from breathing air! There's simply no place to turn to. The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Sea-Monkeys by Experimental Filmmakers has been created as response to this disturbing situation.

When proposals for 1st actions were put forth & the possibility of boycotting Mr. Brakhage's films was brought up, it was decided that he was NOT an experimental filmmaker because he uses the same techniques over & over again & simply DESCRIBES each film differently. As such, this society is soliciting information about truly experimental filmmakers who misuse sea-monkeys & who may not be well-known because of their non-canonization. PLEASE HELP US BRING THESE SLIME OUT OF THE SHADOWS SO THAT WE CAN GIVE THEM THEIR DUE!

Thank you,

tENTATIVELY, a cONVENIENCE pretending to represent Etta Cetera

p.s. That is the Etta Cetera of armchair racing fame.

Thank you again.
