eat my shorts

When I found out the L.A. Short Film Festival was happening this week, I combed the schedule hoping to see that Stephen Hamel's Echo would be in the mix. Unfortunately, I didn't see it in the listings. I did find this though, playing Friday, September 10, 1:15pm @ Theater 8-

Finding Neo
(Comedy/United States/Beta SP/12 min)
Director: TEO
Producers: Gregory Storm. Richard T. Jones and Teo
Writer: Teo
A two-time parolee, Eno, discovers he must find his "One" to save him from a potential third strike and a permanent return to prison.

So if you're in the L.A. area you might want to check that out.

Some of the other short films look interesting as well.

Superheroes: We Work for Tips
(Documentary/United States/Digital Beta/9 min.)
Directors: Paul Preston and Robert B. Nejman
Producer: Paul Preston and Robert B. Nejman
Writers: Paul Preston,Robert B. Nejman and Karen Volpe
A documentary that uncovers the lives of the superhero look-alikes who pose for tips in front of Grauman's Chinese Theater in Hollywood.

Rock On
(Comedy/ United States/35mm/18 min)
Director: Ramsey Mellette
Producer: Tyler Jones, David White and John Halbert
Writer: Ramsey Mellette
A short comedy about a guy who gets a Whitesnake song stuck in his head and can't get it out!

The Ends of the Alphabet
(Suspense/Thriller/United States/Beta SP/9 min)
Director: Eric Kurland
Producer: Eric Kurland
Writer: Eric Kurland
Jackson Abbott is a hard-boiled detective in 1953 Los Angeles. When the daughter of a Las Vegas Millionaire comes to him for help, Abbott finds himself caught up in a web of murder and deceit. Featuring a cast of unique puppets.

Eeeee! Puppets!

Whether you're in the mood for Comedy, Drama, something Animated or a Documentary there's plenty of cinematic goodness going on.

And the best thing about a short film is if it sucks, it'll be over soon.

I read Bryan Singer is getting the "Maverick Film Achievement Award." Way to go! Drat!...too bad I won't be there to see that :-(

Didn't Michael Jackson do something called Captain Eno once? Something at Disney World? It is vagaries such as this that are taking up precious space in my wee brain.

erm, that would be Captain EO, Chianti.

gawd, I love google...

OK, that didn't work. Try to be smart...something I should never do. Try this:

Captain EO

"Guards pop up from behind the heaps of metal and surround the crew...Outnumbered and nowhere to go, EO and the crew surrender and are led to the Supreme Leader's dark, grungy lair."

...sounds like a winner to me!

Frankly I'm kind of glad I didn't get that exactly right.

Lookly forward to Echo, whenever and wherever it turns up.

I remember going to see Captain Eo at Epcot when I was little.

*shudders* He scared me even back then.
