Between 1964 to 1966, Andy Warhol shot over 500 silent, slow-motion films on 16mm black-and-white portraits depicting the lives of popular individuals who frequented the factory, including Bob Dylan, Lou Reed, Rufus Collins, Edie Sedgwick, Allen Ginsberg and Nico. Warhol’s films were motivated by his fascination with individuals and his desire to capture the actual experience of living.
His real name was Paul Johnson, but changed his name to Paul America, encouraged by Warhol. Paul America found himself at Warhol’s Factory as an actor for My Hustler (1965). This screen test depicts the life of Paul America by showing his happy and cocky behavior, as he is constantly licking his lips, chewing gum, and both blinking and looking around.
Andy Warhol, Screen Test: Paul America, 1965, 16mm film, black and white, silent, 4 minutes at 16 frames per second.
