Poppy Jasper Film Festival

The Poppy Jasper Film Festival celebrates the short filmmaking craft and conveys its passion for filmmaking to the community, and has been acclaimed by MovieMaker Magazine as “one of the top 25” in the country for its focus on filmmaker experience. This expresses itself in the continual ways that festival organizers actively foster interaction, ideas, and ongoing contact between filmmakers at all levels of experience and invited screenwriters, directors, producers, and actors. These industry professionals include Academy and Emmy award winners and nominees, people whose extensive experience in the filmmaking industry brings audiences a close-up view of the passion motivating independent filmmaking. The short films (30 minutes or less), which run from horror to comedy, documentary to sci-fi, musical to romance, all have one thing in common: they entertain their audiences. Additionally, this 501(c)3 nonprofit organization awards an annual scholarship to an up-and-coming student filmmaker. Taking its name from the beautiful and rare poppy jasper gemstone found exclusively in Morgan Hill, California, the Poppy Jasper Film Festival mines the popular, fast-growing niche of short films.  The Seventh Annual Poppy Jasper Film Festival will be held November 12 -14, 2010 in Morgan Hill, California.  For further information about the Poppy Jasper Film Festival, please visit

The Loop

Director: John Paol Olsen.
A vastly different, oblique take on the man-walks-into-a-bar story. Gus Lorenz is known to some as a trade expert. He embarks on a journey to find himself and to locate what is missing from his life. The answer seems to lie in bowels of an old speakeasy. It is here that he engages in trade. A train ticket provides his sole means of travel. This troubled man's travel is not along rail lines, but rather across neural synapses. The real trade expert may be at arm's length or locked inside his subconscious being. If Gus Lorenz is the man that the girl of his dreams says he is, then perhaps the only thing he has lost is his true identity. This short science fiction film was shot on location in San Francisco, California as part of the 48-Hour Film Festival.
