For those fed up with the found footage genre as represented by such recent examples as “Paranormal Activities: The Marked Ones” and “Devil’s Due,” you might be reminded that there are also found footage films that are made of actual found footage,
not just stuff that’s been made up. I’m sure you can find worthy candidates from both versions of this quintessentially post-modern art form. Send me your favorites at firstname.lastname@example.org or include them in the comments. Deadline is Monday, Feb. 3. We’ll be presenting the best Sunday, Feb. 9. [shown is a segment from Christian Marclay’s “The Clock” (2010)]
