Coming Attractions

'92 Skybox Alonzo Mourning Rookie Card is a 12-minute comedic short about a dysfunctional sibling relationship. It just premiered at Sundance, but you can watch it online now.

I dug it, and lo, the short is a precursor to a feature film, Awful Nice, that expands on the brothers' relationship.

Ben Franklin Blowing Bubbles at a Sword is a 40-minute documentary short that follows three "mental athletes" as they train for and compete in the 2011 USA Memory Championship.

Ronnie White, a Navy veteran, can meet a conference room full of strangers and minutes later recall every person's name. Nelson Dellis, a software developer, can remember the order of a shuffled deck of playing cards in just a minute. Brad Zupp, a clown, can juggle and memorize computer-generated numbers at the same time.

It just premiered at Slamdance, and will screen at the Big Sky Documentary Film Festival next.
