Based on a Facebook status update, a 5 minute fragment concerning an awkward phone call between a long-distance couple. The girlfriend in Singapore for a photo shoot, the boyfriend slumming it in Brooklyn at another girls apartment. He strains to deflect the girlfriend when she asks him to read from The Great Gatsby, which the other girl doesn't have. The novelist Zachary German plays the man, and he's a mumbly, uneasy presence - the furthest extreme opposite Acting 101, good thing. Film is directed by Adam Humphreys, first one to the base to adapt a Facebook status update. Watch on YouTube or embedded below...Read More
This is the first time we've posted about the Ross Brothers but they could have been featured day one as much as we dig their films. Here's a new short film, a behind the scenes piece they directed on the set of Ain't Them Bodies Saints (opening in 20+ cities today) commissioned by director David Lowery...Read More

Filmmaker Albert Birney (The Beast Pageant) is the man behind this burgeoning Vine character. He's racked up over 78,000 followers in a quick few months, constructing each 6 seconds with meticulous attention and charm. Watch as Sylvio - an ape - house sits for a friend, attends a baseball game, takes a dip, or picks raspberries. Birney's videos stand above the fray of Vine's endless cadre of 'yelling people', they achieve a refined artistry. If you have Vine, tune in for your daily Sylvio, just search "Simply Sylvio".
I'm not exaggerating, Ahmed Khawaja is one of my favorite filmmakers. He's the man behind KWAK, one of the best movies of last year that you never heard about because life isn't fair. But really, he's making important work and you should know about him. You might not be able to keep up with all his films - he seemingly releases a video a week - but find your way into his world gradually and I bet you'll find yourself a kindred experience.
A day in the life of Ahmed Khawaja. Hilarious. A tutorial that forgets to be a tutorial. Directed by John Wilson.
A hopeless tutorial on how to locate, obtain, and fall in love with bed bugs. Another ingeniously conceived installment of John Wilson’s life tutorials. Directed by John WilsonRead More
