ps. thanks everyone who came to our book release party for Zack Haber and Tupelo Hassman. That felt really fantastic to see so many friends and bright attentive faces, and the books are still real and so pretty and we are really proud of them! If you didn’t get a copy you can now do that here; you’ll also be able to pick them up in other places soon… though of course the best place to get them is at the shows! Come on May 12! Please submit. And check out Tiny Splendor… we’ll be working with them again but that doesn’t mean you can’t work with them! And/or be their friends. And three cheers for Hipstamatic — especially to their Director of Fun, Mario Estrada… what a magical way to release our first books. Videos and full text coming soon… Go forth, now; go forth and make people want to make more things!

combustion! our first film

Amy E. Glasenapp‘s story “Combustion” will be the basis for our first short film, which we plan to screen at our May show. We’re currently casting; auditions are this Wednesday and Thursday (January 29th and 30th) in San Francisco. If you can’t make it on one of those dates and would like a shot, we’ll be holding a short round early afternoon Saturday February 1st. More details about the film and auditions can be found here.

Thanks to everyone who sent us a script or a story. We received 19 and accepted 1 (5%). We had a blast imagining how we might convert them into movies, and are thrilled to get to work on Amy’s story. Actually, we’re already hard at work: the script is being drafted, the location scouted, props and equipment gathered… we’ll have all the shooting done by the first of March.

Hope to see you before then, though.
