The original Bolex Poetics team was created between February 26 and March 4, 1996 in Silver Spring, Maryland. The original members of the team consisted of selected films by filmmakers associated with the New American Cinema movement. The Poetics were related to the CBA's Visionville Beasts which was a cosmic team created on March 18, 1985 in Silver Spring. The Beasts represented the filmmakers themselves. For Season 1997 the Beasts became the Poetics and the original Poetics players (the films) were deactivated after one season. The original Beasts made it to the Cosmic Universal Series twice (1989, 1991) but were defeated both times.
For the 2000 Cosmic Season the Poetics selected two rookies: Storm de Hirsch is an independent filmmaker, poet and teacher who has been associated with avant-garde filmmaking circles since the 1950s. Amy Taubin is also an experimental filmmaker and critic who writes for a number of publications including New York's Village Voice.
