Updates - December 2015
Dirty diapers don't taste as good as you'd think, but that ain't news to anyone, this is:
I. DADDY LONGLEGS finally comes to DVD via Zeitgeist Films, Kimstim and IFC FILMS Dec 13th, Today! This DVD is, as some slang says: is Disgusting! Sammy Harkham, of Cartooning/Family Books fame, designed this DVD and did THIS BEAUTIFUL COVER complete with great Tim Hensley Lettering. Here's a link to buy your copy. Just consider this, It weighs a lot. There's stuff in it, on the disk and in the package. Bucky Fuller used to ask fellow architects, "How much does your Building weigh?"
II. THE BLACK BALLOON a short film created by Andy Spade and Written and Directed by Josh and Benny Safdie will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival. It's about 21 minutes. This film surprised us, came up like the Balloon itself, out of thin air (helium). Here's our synopsis, don't read into the Sundance press release:
"While trying to move forty kids six blocks in New York City alone, a stressed man accidentally loses a bouquet of a hundred balloons. In that bouquet, a lone black balloon scurries free with the rest of them. It dies and comes back to life, returning to the city cruising for a companion. On the beat, it learns that humans are complicated creatures with extreme highs and lows, but full of life nonetheless. An intended for Children's film turned Sci-Fi urban fable, this is a story about The Black Balloon."
Here's a Trailer!
