   avant-garde movies, motion graphics, and theory
by Michael Betancourt is written and edited by Michael Betancourt specifically focusing on motion graphics, experimental/avant-garde motion pictures and has updates about his new movies, writing and research projects.

It contains research, theory and criticism as well as takes note of new trends in technology and aesthetics.

The contents posted here are things that interest me, either from my research (both critical theory and media) or my movie-related work. I generally try to post something at least once per week, as my schedule allows.
