LOVE TO HATE • a short romance

Please enjoy this short “romance” film that we made earlier this month for the Denver 48 Hour Film Project. This really could not have been possible without our amazing team, which consisted some of our common collaborators including Randy Washington, Chris Charpentier, Andrew Orvedahl, Andy Juett, Kristin Rand, and Ben Jones of Image Brew, plus a handful of other super talented folks. Too many to thank here. Please read the credits! Also, congrats to all the other incredible teams who pulled off something that is very close to impossible: making a cohesive, finished film in just 2 days.

REQUIRED ELEMENTS:
Genre: ROMANCE
Prop: APPLES
Character: AUNT VANNA or UNCLE VIRGIL GERBENS
Dialogue “WHY DON’T YOU DO IT?”

Our First 48 Hour Film Project

Last weekend was Denver’s annual 48 hour Film Project, and our first time participating in the event as filmmakers. If you’re not familiar, it’s simple. You are assigned a Genre, Prop, Character, and Line of Dialogue, and have 48 hours to write, shoot and edit a fully fleshed-out film. To raise the stakes, it’s a competition, with over 50 teams participating. Exhilarating. We had a great time, and here is the teaser/trailer for the film which premieres THIS SUNDAY, August 11th at 7:45pm in Group D. Please come out and support it, and all the other talented filmmakers who pulled off amazing feats last weekend.

Those Who Can’t

Those Who Can’t is a sitcom pilot that we had the immeasurable pleasure and luck to be allowed to make, along with our friends Andrew Orvedahl, Ben Roy and Adam Cayton-Holland (among MANY OTHERS). The show also features hilarious comedians Rory Scovel, Kyle Kinane and Nikki Glaser, plus worked with a plethora of Denver actors and crew. The pilot episode is now available for free to watch in its entirety exclusively on Amazon Instant Video, and its reviews and ratings, as well as responses to this survey, will help determine whether or not Amazon wants to pick it up to become a series. Please check it out, along with all the other pilots that Amazon optioned, at AmazonOriginals.com, then please take the time to let Amazon know how much you want to see Those Who Can’t picked up for more episodes. Thank you to everyone who supports!

Episode X “When the Cats are Away”

Adam Cayton-Holland and Ben Roy have seen a lot of success lately. Adam just did Conan, Ben’s album is getting rave reviews, and they’re traveling and doing shows a lot. And you know what, good on ‘em. They deserve it. But it’s almost like they’ve been too busy for their old friends. So while they were out touring the world last month, we and Andrew Orvedahl decided to made this Grawlix episode without them. And we got a little help from two hilarious comics, Rory Scovel and Sean Patton. Adam and Ben had no idea, until we surprised them at their own show. What fun. Enjoy.

Episode 11 “Three Dummies and a Baby”

Don’t mistake our recent slowdown in blog posts as a sign that we’ve been taking it easy the last few months. We’ve just been hard at work on another project that has required us to put The Grawlix on the back burner for a few weeks. But we’re back! With very possibly the funniest episode yet. Take a big sigh of relief and click play.

Long time coming…

Boy we’ve been lucky to have done a lot of crazy fun work over the last few years. This most recent reel is just a small sampling. We’re told all directors are supposed to have one of these, the problem has always been keeping it current. It might not last for long, but for the time being here’s a taste of some of the best from the last few years. Enjoy.

The Rare North American Adam Cayton-Holland Bird

If you’re not familiar with Denver comedian Adam Cayton-Holland, wise up. He has been a staple of the Denver comedy scene for the better part of the last decade, and has been killing it as of late. In addition to being runner-up for best local at our own Laugh Track Comedy Festival, he has recently made headlines after being named one of the prestigious Montreal Just For Laughs Festival’s New Faces Of Comedy. If you’re a frequent reader of this site, you will obviously recognize him as 1/3rd of the hilarious comedy group The Grawlix and one of the main characters in our own web series of the same name. I can’t say enough. He’s amazing.

Our collaborations with him are far from over, and we have some big news on the horizon, so stay the f*ck tuned.

In the meantime, watch the above sketch that we just finished with him over and over again on repeat forever. It’s just a subtle nod to his obsession with bird watching.
