How Lucky Can You Get?

We really enjoyed the series of music videos for kids from Eric Herman. His “Elephant Song” is notorious for having built a fan base over time (5 million views over the years) and the animation by wife Roseanne and their daughter is fun and clever.  This song is one of our favorites.  We’ll feature some of the others at another time, but for now, get ready to get really lucky!

I was already pretty sure that you are not supposed to watch your lucky socks, but it’s good to have the confirmed.


One shot please!

I didn’t really get this one the first time through. I was lost in the inquiry of the story. Just WHAT are these people doing?

When I looked again, I could see the genius emerge like a crab from beneath a protective rock. The sheer lifting strength it took to get this story to us amazes me today. See if you can follow this frenetic pace and grasp the accomplishment that is rushing past you!

When I watch this, I am encouraged to swing for the fence!

A Fable, a Culprit, and a Winner!

In the 2008 season of the San Jose 48 Hour Film Project, one of the more exotic genre choices was “Fable.” The team that made this movie drew it and needed to figure out how to use their best location (a Catholic Church in Alameda) to fold into such a story.

Their cinematography and interesting performances by their cast made this a City Winner.

We always liked frogs – so maybe this was really a Tragedy.

Love and Peanut Butter

In the first San Jose 48 Hour Film Project, the competitors were instructed to use peanut butter as a prop in their 48 hour movie. This led to assaults by peanut butter, atomized peanut butter being sprayed over the mayor, a death by falling peanut butter jar, and one of our favorites, the creamy spread being used as an aphrodisiac.

Don’t try this in your real-life relationship.

Not Quite Terrifying

…this might be the first glimpse I had of the new world of web series.  I know I was not the only one to wonder what would happen if Darth Vader’s brother had a terrible job at a supermarket as an assistant manager.  You may enjoy this series too.

This series is in its third season now. I’m a little jealous of these guys. But I’m glad they’ve taken this concept and built it into a very successful franchise.

Trust us, this is worth your 4 minutes
