The Youngest Candidate
Film Screening - Tue 16 Dec 2008 at 07:00PM
+ Director Q&A with Jason Pollock

The Youngest Candidate is a feature length documentary film directed by Jason Pollock. It is produced by David Letterman's company, Worldwide Pants, in partnership with Oscar winner Lawrence Bender (producer of 'Pulp Fiction' and 'An Inconvenient Truth', etc..) and Balance Vector Productions.

It follows the story of 4 teens that ran for public office in America. Funny, inspiring, poignant, and ultimately uplifting, 'The Youngest Candidate' is not just a film about running for office. It is the coming of age story of four idealistic young adults who dared to confront the corrupt political systems in America. Through their journey these young candidates learn about fair play, leadership development, racism in politics, the importance of family, and many other lessons that they will carry with them throughout their lives. In the face of great adversity, these four young adults braved all the odds to make it to Election Day to show that regardless of the outcome, it didn't matter... It's all about how you play the game. RSVP NOW!

Beautiful Losers
Film Screening - Wed 17 Dec 2008 at 07:00PM
+ Director Q&A with Aaron Rose

Beautiful Losers celebrates the spirit behind one of the most influential cultural moments of a generation.

In the early 1990's a loose-knit group of likeminded outsiders found common ground at a little NYC storefront gallery. Rooted in the DIY (do-it-yourself) subcultures of skateboarding, surf, punk, hip hop & graffiti, they made art that reflected the lifestyles they led. Developing their craft with almost no influence from the "establishment" art world, this group, and the subcultures they sprang from, have now become a movement that has been transforming pop culture.

Starring a selection of artists who are considered leaders within this culture, Beautiful Losers focuses on the telling of personal stories. It speaks to themes of what happens when the outside becomes "in" as it explores the creative ethos connecting these artists and today's youth. RSVP NOW!

Intern Wanted - Psychic Bunny

Once upon a time, I tried to change the name of my company to Cream Soda
Brand Cream Soda Corporation. The other partners shook their heads and said,
³Honestly, friend, that simply will not do! We are a creative company! We do
games, and film, and video, and post! We don¹t do cream soda!² Hopelessly
surrounded and unarmed, I had no choice but to relent. Now, however, they¹ve
asked me to write the ad for our intern. It¹s an unpaid position, but you¹ll
get to help me take those bastards down, from the inside.

So here¹s what we¹re gonna do: we¹re gonna produce video. We¹re gonna edit
it. We¹re gonna do graphics and marketing. We¹re gonna go find clients and
stay in business! Then, when nobody¹s watching, we are going to scheme like
there¹s no tomorrow. There¹s only two ways this can go: One, we make this
company successful beyond anyone¹s wildest dreams; Two, we totally dismantle
it and dance on the shards! Either way, it¹s a win-win situation, with both
wins going to you, Intern!

This is a non-paying internship, for credit only. Sorry about that part. 2-3
days per week.

Burgeoning skills in animation, editing, graphics, or something like that.
Some college credit required.

Email now! Please put Cream Soda Intern in the
subject line. Include resume and a reel if you have one.
