Overview

Echoes from the Set, Vol. II delves into the shadows and the underground influences of the emerging 60's and 70's New Cinema that was only hinted at "between the lines" in Vol. I

With the help of University of Oregon professors, as well as professors from CU Boulder and University of Cincinnati, this book ties together the author's personal experiences and interviews of members of the New Hollywood and those that influenced them, such as the Merry Pranksters and their film crew, Poetic Cinema Filmmakers, still living members of the Beat Generation, and through academic articles and books, from Plato to Yeats and the time's literary theory deconstructionists, answers the question of what created them.

Author Biography

Katherine Wilson attended the University of Oregon as an English major and soon became an actress for Ken Kesey's 16mm Poetic Cinema Pranksters. Concurrently, she was discovered by director Mark Rydell for his film Cinderella Liberty. Mark brought her to Hollywood and encouraged her to attend film school at the University of California; however, she wanted to continue as a filmmaker in Oregon. Her first major film as location scout and casting director was for the notorious Animal House. She provided these services for the next 20 years on many films, including Stand by Me, and was the governor's liaison to the set of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. Steven Rust grew up in the small town of Sandpoint, Idaho and has called the Pacific Northwest home his entire life. He earned a BS degree in Secondary Education from Idaho State University and completed an MA in English with a focus on Film Studies at OSU in 2006. While working on his MA, he spent three years as Assistant Editor of Cinema Journal. In 2011, he completed a PhD in English with a focus in Film History and Environmental Criticism at the University of Oregon.
