Be Happy! But What If I’m Jewish?

Our friends in The Kinsey Sicks thought about this classic for a while and realized that it wasn’t appropriate for every culture. So they gave us this!

In the Kitchen, Safety is Paramount

When it comes to the kitchen, safety is Rule #1. And when it comes to safety, listening to your wife is Rule #1.

That is, if you can remember.

This short film came from Ovation Pictures, whose latest work will show and be considered for Awards in the San Jose 48 Hour Film Project on Sunday.

You can be on hand if you’re near San Jose. It’s at the Camera 12 Cinema, Sept 20 at 4:30pm PDT. Tickets are available now.

Nothing to See Here Malcolm

We’ve lost count of how many gems the filmmaking team Film Antics has produced in time-based film competitions

They’ve brought home awards for Cinematography, Acting, and have finished as City Winner or runner up on multiple occasions. This entry brought them the prize for Best Comedy.

You can see the latest 48 Hour Film Project entry from this team on Wed night (Aug 19) at 7pm in San Jose. Their film will screen with about a dozen others at the Camera 12 Cinema. You can get tickets here.

See It For Real

Okay, we’ve been telling you about cool things to see online for a long time now. (This our 301st post in fact.)

Now there’s going to be a TV series written for movie screens (before the main feature) and for select local broadcast markets. And OF COURSE we’ll release episodes online after the premiere. The series is called Trendinistas, and it’s a panel show about the things that happen in online entertainment. You’re going to love it!

Meanwhile, given the weekend it is, and the fact that we’re going to use this clip in our first episode (taping tomorrow), we thought you should see this:

We hope you’ll become a Trendinista soon. And if you’re in the SF Bay Area, you could be in the studio audience for our next taping in May at the Poppy Jasper Film Festival.

If you’re part of our online audience, then use the comment blocks here (or any other means you know to be in touch with us) to tell us what you think our panelists should be talking about on the show!

Starting Somewhere

It’s sort of a cliche’ that many now famous actors and musicians got their start while helping diners decide from among the specials.

Here are two of today’s stars as they looked long ago, and a much humbler setting. (I guess that’s what we could call Dana Carvey’s old show.)

Next year, you can expect to see both of these stellar comedy players in new places. And hopefully they’ll have overcome this terrible affliction.
