So have you ever found yourself thinking, man, I wish I could help out a bunch of independent filmmakers without doing anything other than drinking and dancing with my friends?
OH MY GOD, now you can!
Yeah, tomorrow night, in fact. You just get yourself to the Production Lounge on Franklin Avenue in Greepoint. There will be short films shown by the amazingly talented Meercat Media Arts Collective (whose film, Stages, won the Best Documentary and Audience Choice awards at the 2009 HBO International Latino Film Festival). And a special videocast of NEVER BEFORE SEEEN FOOTAGE from us, the Goddamn Cobras.
And there will be DJs. But not just any DJs. No, sirree. These DJs will be dressed as train conductors. Why? Oh, right. Because this whole thing is a fundraiser for this awesome train movie Gina Telaroli is directing (and in which the aforementioned DJs, Meerkats, and Goddamn Cobras, Annie of Greenpoint Rooftop Farms, the creator of The Auteurs, and others will be appearing).
The whole film will be shot next weekend on an Amtrak train from New York City to Cleveland, Ohio, and back. And you can help us out just by coming to the Production Lounge tomorrow night and ordering some drinks (there’s no cover; we get a portion of the bar sales). Cool, huh? Yeah. Be there.
