If You Love Something, Set It Free

I caught all the toads I could as a kid.  I kept them in cages.  One morning, they were all gone, and in their place was a note from Walter Wart The Freak Frog.  This lovely short animation reminded me of those days…

Thanks yet again for Disposable Film Festival for tipping me to this.

Another Way Of Telling

I have had the pleasure of being a judge for the Disposable Film Festival.  Last night they rocked the house at the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs, celebrating the Palm Springs International Short Film Festival.

I almost forgot how much I love MALARIA.  It’s ambitious. It is risk taking.  It is fun. This is that:

A “Disposable” Epic Shot On A Cell Phone

Les Ongles (The Nails) by Clement Deneux was the Grand Prize Winner at the Disposable Film Festival 2012 where I got to be a judge for the second year in a row. It has great fun with a handful of trends in popular filmmaking — the cell phone shot party that goes out of control among them — but always with a very unique bent. I look forward to see what Clement does next.

This site could not have been built without the help and insight of Michael Morgenstern. My thanks go out to him.

Help save indie film and give this guy a job in web design or film!
