WHAT WE ARE UP TO: 

Jeff is delving into the murky mind of a mad French Futurist who seeks the ultimate form of artistic expression, armed robbery. See what it’s all about at THAT’S BEAUTIFUL FRANK.

Cat is diving head long in the highly lucrative and profitable world of publishing and curation with The 22 Magazine. Centering around a juxtaposition of artists writers and musicians, The 22 is a happy sailor on the seas of artistic collaboration.

From the Creator:

As I said this is a performance. I don’t want there to be any doubts about my situation. I am a performer. I have a roof over my head and I have yet to start my own family. But this video isn’t about me. This is for the men, women and children on our streets who don’t have bright green puppets on their hands. The people who aren’t always as easy to see. This is for you.

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.

Read more about the theme below and check all the amazingness at this year’s festival!: http://www.chicagofilmfestival.com/

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?


Attempt to curtail your enthusiasm until 7pm! And don’t miss GAF at 2pm tomorrow!
