Jonas Mekas described George Maciunas as the "Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer" of FLuxux films. Maciunas, father of the Fluxfilm Anthology project, made the credits for each film and decided on their order in the program.
As a filmmaker he developed his own form of film humor, making cameraless films out of nothing but some numbered or perforated leader or raw stock or on an animation stand. George Maciunas' films can be considered abstract or textual propositions which, though they appear quite serious, are actually mock essays on duration.
"End after 9" is a filmic joke. Its title, which appears on the screen for a disproportionate length of time compared to the brevity of the film's action, leads the viewer to wonder about its meaning. Then, when the numbers 1 to 9 flash by in an instant, the film is over.
