How Andy Made A Movie...True Uncut Tales From The Factory People Archive


How Andy Made A Movie takes us back to the very beginning when Warhol first started to make movies, through his early scripted sound period and on to the last film he made, San Diego Surf in May 1968, just before he was shot by actress/playwright Valerie Solanis. Shortly afterwards he stopped movie making and turned those reigns over to his film assistant Paul Morrissey.

True Uncut Tales From The Factory People Archive is the sub-title for this film, the first of a series.  Based on well over fifty hours of interviews and hundreds of photos and clips, each film in this series could never make it to television as the subject matter is, for the most part, raw and sometimes shocking but highly entertaining and informative especially for students of the filmmaking process.

 This 45 minute film features rarely seen clips of Andy and Paul shooting San Diego Surf in La Jolla, California, news footage from CBS related to underground filmmaking in New York in the early sixties, and an interview with Warhol Superstar Edie Sedgwick. The story is told by various Superstars and Factory People in their own words.  Underground filmmaker Jonas Mekas, the director who helped get  Andy turned on to making films, relates the various stages that Andy went through to arrive at films like Chelsea Girls. Interviews with many Warhol Superstars and original Factory People flesh out the story. Photos by Billy Name, Nat Finkelstein and others who were there for Andy’s productions illustrate the film.
