George Kuchar

Last Name: 
First Name: 

George Kuchar is one of the most exciting and prolific independent videomakers working today. A master of genre manipulation and subversion, he has created dozens of brilliantly edited, hilarious, observant, often diaristic tapes with an 8mm camcorder, dime-store props, and not-so-special effects, using friends as actors and the "pageant that is life" for his studio. In 1992, Kuchar received the prestigious Maya Deren Award for Independent Film and Video Artists from the American Film Institute.
