George Kuchar just died:

Experimental filmmaker George Kuchar, whose no-budget, lo-fi, “plot, schmot” technique became a genre followed by generations of San Francisco art students along with auteurs such as John Waters and Andy Warhol, died of prostate cancer Tuesday with his twin brother by his side. He was 69.

Mr. Kuchar made more than 500 films and videos…. With titles such as “I Was a Teenage Rumpot” (1960), “Hold Me While I’m Naked” (1966), “The Devil’s Cleavage” (1975) and “Insanitorium” (1987), Mr. Kuchar’s films have been labeled campy, avant-garde, underground and simply indescribable. He used friends, relatives and students as actors, hastily constructed props and shot in whatever shabby locations he could find.
