Mankind Is No Island

Sydney-based film makers Jason van Genderen (director), Shane Emmett (producer), and John Roy (music composer)  created an amazing short that just won $20,000 and Best Film at Tropfest NY 2008 (which I believe is the world’s largest short film festival). The best part is that it was shot on a total budget of $57, and captured using cellphones, nothing else!

I don’t normally post over the weekend but I just found out about this and had to post it immediately. Definitely deserving of the festival’s top prize, and I am excited to see what they do next.

Keep tabs on the filmmakers here:

In honour of Kanye’s surprising new album artwork and title, “The Life of Pablo”, Andy, Joey, and Drew made a Kanye Album Art Generator. My version is dedicated to my little friend Mika.

This is nuts! I wonder how many times they had to shoot this (and how much plane fuel was used). Watch “Upside Down & Inside Out” on Booooooom TV.
