Each of us can become…

A More Perfect Yellow is available to each of us if we have the courage to dig as deeply into the soul — and soak every so lovingly in the fountain of geekyness, as Lucious Breckensted. This height is available to you. Do you want it…

…badly enough?


Ohhhhh, I’m sooooooo scared!

One of the trickiest genres to draw in the 48 Hour Film Project is horror.  It’s easy to get many of the devices of horror right, but to make a watchable and interesting film created in just a weekend is quite a feat.  And of course the audience has see it all, so how could you possibly get it all put together with your non-existent budget, your non-existent schedule, and without having planned for making a horror film in advance (since you don’t know that this will be your genre)?

Well, this team from Minneapolis got all the details right, and we were amazed. So, apparently were the judges because this became the City Winner in a town where nearly 100 teams competed! We hope you enjoy The Grave Review.

We never did think that much of critics anyway.

Take a look and see what you think.

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.

Trust us, this is worth your 4 minutes
