|Very Nice, Very Nice|
|Directed by||Arthur Lipsett|
|Produced by||Tom Daly
|Edited by||Arthur Lipsett|
|Distributed by||National Film Board of Canada|
While working at the National Film Board, Lipsett collected pieces of audio from the waste bins and pieced them together as a hobby. When his friends heard the product of this they suggested that he add images to it. The result was this film.
Release and reception
Stanley Kubrick wrote to Lipsett to praise Very Nice, Very Nice, stating that it was "the most imaginative and brilliant uses of the movie screen and soundtrack that I have ever seen." Kubrick asked him to create a trailer for his upcoming movie Dr. Strangelove. Lipsett declined Kubrick's offer. Kubrick went on to direct the trailer himself; however, Lipsett's influence on Kubrick is clearly visible in the released trailer.
