Epic Smash-Up

There’s probably something coming out this holiday season that will get you back into the theaters at least once. For us, it was “The Last Jedi” but there may be at least one or two others that will get us spilling popcorn into our laps.

Since there will be a lot of Star Wars talk in the coming weeks, we couldn’t resist showing you this maker clip that celebrates the awesome bigness of the Super Star Destroyer.

Competitors, organizers, and fans of the 48HFP will drop in at the Octopus Literary Society for a gathering on Saturday, 12/10 from 3:30pm to 5:30pm. You’ll find more details on the Facebook pages for both the San Francisco and the San Jose 48 Hour Film Project.

Christmas Needs a Lot of Saving

Everybody knows about Little Cindy Lou Who, but do you know about someone else who saved Christmas?

For your consideration, we present one Zachary Alexander – an unlikely hero who carries the weight of an entire holiday on the brim of his hard hat.

Beyond Forever Studios, the team that made this film will be in the house on Sunday when the latest crop of Award nominees from the San Jose 48 Hour Film Project are screened.
