The Tunnel: Featuring Sxip Shirey

Musical Interlude number 2! Music very kindly lent by harmonica aficionado Sxip Shirey, animation and gratuity provided by Cat Gilbert and some badly abused footage of 1950s volcanoes. Result? Eruption of gratuity!

Original Song: http://sxip.bandcamp.com/track/a-young-man-walks-in-brooklyn

Hi Folks, we are terribly behind on gratuity for you this week but that’s simply becuase we’re building some delightful goodness for Halloween!

We promise to whip ourselves back into shape next week and keep an eye out for a taste of things to come a little later this week!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Did you miss the gratuity at The International Film Festival in Chicago? Did it catch the 3:39 back to New York?

Well that’s only because gratuity is soon off for a jaunt in Germany at the UMAO Festival. This festival looks like a big ol’ bomb of nerd art meets DJ fantasy complete with sound workshops and a final art battle on the closing night and hell yes….we wish we could be there. However, we are currently in the trenches mixing up a cauldron of madness for a super spectacular night at Surreal Estate this Halloween! Look out for the trailer at the end of the week!

Here’s a sneak peak at UMAO Fest from last year: http://www.uamo.info/cms/index.php?page=video

A terrific collab with our buddy CineGraphic (aka Eric Krasner) will be screening in the one minute competition at The Chicago International Film Fest!

Our interpretation of “The Human Condition” will be showing, Sunday 10/10 at 12pm at AMC River East.

The Human Condition:

With “The Human Condition”, we are bringing back a tradition, begun at the 4th Chicago International Film Festival in 1968, of presenting a unique competition. We challenge filmmakers from around the world to use the medium of film to address a particular question, concept, or issue in one minute. This year, we turn to the creative filmmakers of the word to explore “The Human Condition”. Filmmakers of all ages are invited to conceive, design, and produce an original 60 second film that examines who and what we are.

The human condition – is it describable? What causes people to start a war? Grow a flower? Abide poverty? Create Art? Advance technology? Pollute the environment? Seek knowledge? Cure illness? Is there a difference between cause and effect, symptom and disease? What is our place in the world? What makes us who we are?
