Shorts

Be With Me- Documentary Submission Accepted to NYCIndieFF

user
We just watched "Be With Me," a documentary short that was sent to us by its director Michael Terrill. "Be With Me" is the reflection of the journey the Cairns family took to help their autistic son, J.R., to recovery, something really not considered possible at the time J.R. was diagnosed. It was a wonderful feature; beyond being cleanly edited and intimately filmed, it successfully captured an emotional backdrop not found in every documentary. Through his interviews, Terril...

Famous People Talking About Shit

user
  When the LA Comedy Shorts Film Festival first began, I was lucky enough to be invited on the ground floor to participate. It’s remained one of my favorite events to cover for several reasons. The intimacy makes networking easy. The devotion and passion of craft of comedy is fostered. The industry big wigs they get are impressive, yet approachable. And well, the shorts are just funny! Additionally, each year the annual Famous People Talking About Sh#t panel provides insight into bo...

Lynne Stewart is a Mensch!

user
  Admit it, you’ve asked yourself that age-old question, “if stranded on a desert island, with whom would I care to be stuck?” The obvious clichés come to mind: George Clooney, Halle Berry, or someone who’d fit the “tall and worth the climb” description. Sure they’re pretty, but one of the most beautiful people I’ve ever met is the incomparable Miss Lynne Stewart. Stewart stars in “BINGO NIGHT,” a comedic short film by Jo...

What Are You Waiting For?

user
  The LA Comedy Shorts Film Festival is the brainchild of Gary Anthony Williams, Jeannie Roshar, Ryan Higman and Kelly Frazier. Unlike many festivals, they’ve stayed true to their vision of an intimate festival that cultivates talent and provides realistic opportunities for filmmakers. If you’re looking for other twisted brains while indulging in great beers and excellent food, this festival is the best! One of the most appealing qualities of this festival is the ability to ne...

Don't Be A Douche!

user
  Don’t let the rumor, ‘NO ONE WAS ARRESTED,’ throw you. The LA Comedy Shorts Film Festival Opening Night Gala did NOT disappoint. Beers went down easy at the Angel City Brewery and people lined up to chat with the likes of Laraine Newman, Wendie Malick, Jon Huertas, Cedric Yarbrough and Jordan Black to name a few. Tasty morsels from Umami Burger and Cool Haus food trucks kept everyone happy. I didn’t get a chance to enjoy any of this because the Vegas-like heat mad...

I Am So Into YOU

user
Over the years, I'd had it. Having worked/volunteered for film festivals for more than a decade, it became increasingly clear that a cancer had reared its ugly head. The observation I made was nothing short of sycophant society hell bent on being seen and/or canoodling with some celebrity. To me, these over-stuffed bras, deluxe Botox, label wearing women and men show up at events like ugly girls accompanied to the prom by a paid-off neighbor. Everyone knows, but no one says anything. I don&...

How to Light for Your Genre in Your Short Film

user
When entering a short film competition, it is imperative that you use every filming device possible to echo the key elements of your theme. Winning filmmakers are aware that lighting is a vital tool which will make your film shout to the audience even when there is silence. Whatever genre you have chosen, you can improve the overall look of your film by understanding that lighting is as important as all the other elements you are bringing together. Don’t make the mistake of treating lighti...

Saying It Without Words

user
Get The Most Out of Your Three Elements Have you noticed how you can watch a film over again and are blown away each time, yet other films are one-offs? What is the difference between the film that makes us cry or gasp, and the one that activates the cringe factor? A Masterly Production Great films waste nothing: every shot, prop, and line of dialogue works to move the story forward. Nothing is superfluous, and the more you watch them, the more you see. This means that there is more going on ...

'The Phantasmagoria of Defeat' (2013) @ 16th TDF.

Anastasia Christoforidou's short film doc 'The Phantasmagoria of Defeat' (2013) screened at the 16th annual Thessaloniki Doc Fest. “Fuck Picasso!” That's what this cutting edge Greek pop artist says. Yorgos Tzinoudis is rapidly building a reputation for himself as the Andy Warhol of Greece who spends all his time creating art and making wine. During the 16th annual Thessaloniki Documentary Film Festival, filmmakers took one of Yorgos' wine tours of the wine museu...
