lj frezza is a film and video maker who works primarily in found footage. he considers himself foremost an editor, utilizing the concepts of eisenstein's intellectual montage to create new relationships out of mostly forgotten films and videos that he finds at garage sales, thrift stores, and eBay. he views the process of repurposing motion picture ephemera as a form of archival, giving this source material new audiences. his work is simultaneously critical and celebratory towards the footage that he re-edits, displaying a nostalgia, as well as a distinct love of kitsch. by utilizing "outmoded" formats like 16mm and vhs, he also seeks to address the progress of technology in the contemporary era, where a drive for production has left us with stockpiles of "useless" media that often end up as garbage.
