WATCH ON NETFLIX!

I really liked this movie.  It was super creepy, and went some very unexpected places.  While the black and white cinematography was gorgeous in every way, it has so much more going for it.  The great use of silence and music, the fantastic pacing and flashes of totally terrifying images has you on edge for the entire hour and 16 minutes.  The film has such great control and shows really great technique of the medium, I would highly recommend checking it out.  It’s going to be tough to beat for my fav this Oct. during my 31 horror films project.

ProleteR is an artist on soundcloud that puts a modern twist on old music. I highly suggest checking out anything he has made.

WATCH IT HERE!

Not only do I adore this short film because it was made by and about my dear friends Austin and Jamie, but I think it’s important to highlight short work by new filmmakers making silly, honest, fun films to become better at their craft. Austin made this in an afternoon. Go out and make a movie!

Michael Jackson Motown Audition 1968

WATCH IT HERE!

I enjoy pretending to know nothing of this innocent, talented and entertaining 9 year old Michael Jackson. Imagine being a Motown Executive in that room, witnessing something beautiful, unaware of what would manifest into a worldwide phenomena. Whether you prefer to focus on the negative or positive from Michael’s life, this kid can get down like James Brown.

WATCH IT HERE!

This french short draws you in and leaves you with a chill in a minimal run time.  The simple, yet poignant, development of the piano tuner has you rooting for him despite his questionable ethics as he pretends to be disabled to garner sympathy from clients.  This short is dark, funny, and well made. Not good if you’re particularly squeamish, however.

Scraps – Jordan Schlansky’s Masterpiece

WATCH IT HERE!

 Conan O’Brien is, without a doubt, the best late night host. His comedic timing and sensibilities are unrivaled. His associate producer, Jordan Schlansky, is an enigma of a character. When combined, the two are often a dissonance between precision and thoughtfulness. In this outtake, we get another glimpse at the hilarious relationship between the two, and it’s great.
