I am loking for a short film that was done about 5 years ago. Alberto Giacometti was the subject, I believe it was made with clay. I would love to find it and watch it again.

It's Roger Bain. He also ran Barking Gecko records, HQ'd in Clarendon Hills, where his parents lived. (They were on my paper route). BG records (Roger) put out at least one 45rpm that featured a song called "Thanks, Mr. Banks" about Ernie, and the flip side was "Weather Girl"(?)

I think he's doing music for ads or some such. I googled around a couple years back because I wondered whatever happened to him. I ended up with some of his record collection when his parents put it on the curb!

YES, YES, YES ! ! !
It was called,"Barking Gecko Video Review" by Roger Bane (not sure of sp on last name, "Baine"?) I saw it back in the 80's and I recorded the soundtrack by holding my kids' Fischer price cassette recorder up to the TV speaker. I still listen to this tape.
Some of the songs/segments were:
I Doctor, Let's Window Shop for Cosktail Sausages, Orange Hair, Patagonia, Diphead--a spot for a talking ball of party dip that entertained your guests as you at it, and the one about the cable TV marketing man--
"Cable TV, for you and for me
Girls: How many channels can there possibly be ?"
Coming back ?

Does anybody remember a music video from c. 1981 that aired on Image Union entitled "Programmer For Cable TV" by a group called the Barking Geckos? GT Lafayette, IN
