The Mercer Street Medical Case (v1 part 1) 3:40

November 7th, 2011 • Paul H-O

Popular Doctor for New York's Creative Community Gets Booted by Greedy Landlord

My version of Dr. House is real. New documentary at square two is in reality in pre-production, a drama with 27 hours of real-time video about Dr. Daryl Isaacs, the uniquely brilliant and prolific internist, gives me his story of the struggle with the American medical establishment fix - all specialists and no GP's. He demonstrates in check form the insanity of "for profit health insurance' companies", Isaacs' massive patient load, and the surprising facts behind his inclusion in the hit film - SUPERSIZE ME, by then documentary director, Morgan Spurlock.


The Mercer Street Medical Case begins as a New York real estate nightmare, because Daryl Isaacs loses the lease on his medical practice and must move by the end of May. It was April and I began shooting the  more »

Concrete TV Sample 13

May 11th, 2011 • Paul H-O
Concrete TV is a NYC-based public access show by Ron Rocheleau that combines sex, violence and art. STARK RAVING MANIAC WORK OF BRILLIANCE.  For more information -www.concretetv.com Ron Rocheleau has also been firmly at work with GalleryBeat on and off since the 1990's when we were both Public Access producers. Ron's lurid hypervision of a digital schizophrenia began before this could be done on a computer, so he hasn't bothered to get one at all. I think that is the sign of the artist, at least the compulsory type that works more like a writer, and doesn't draw on everything that doesn't move. He talks a lot. He makes me nuts. He also makes moving pictures into deep streams of neurological wonder. The new box set will put you away for good. H-O

He is the incredible inimitable George Herms, the royal jester King of a generation of artists that began producing the found object assemblage and manufactured objects beyond ordinary recognition. George made the impossible possible, he provides material clues to the surreal manner of talking about his work. Special appearance by artist Fred Tomaselli. Directed by Paul H-O Edited by Gaia Balidini Videotaped at Nyehaus 8/10 Music by George Herms and Thelonious Monk

Dolphin Cuts Off Artists...

January 3rd, 2011 • Paul H-O
Nature is fast, beautiful, and lethal. He would have killed us for sure if we had tried to drop in on his wave. I personally would rather be killed by a dolphin than a shark, because they're a lot more lovable.  H-O Directed by Paul H-O, starring Jim Evans and Flipper,  Animal handler- FiFi Lebeouf, Camera- May Rigler
