Misguided Sympathies of Flowers is supposed to be about isolation. It’s supposed to be about how a mentally ill homeless woman deals with being alone. It’s supposed to be dramatic and disturbing.

The Ruffians ventures into the underground

You ever wonder what’s in those huge underground tunnels you see around town? You know the ones. You can often find them under a bridge or overpass. I always thought they were bum tunnels. I was terrified to go in them. Sometimes, I’d step in and immediately retreat back on out. I never made it two steps in, so I have no proof that bums ever lived in them. Writers Travis Mills and Drew Koshar have a much different and quite frankly much more interesting theory in the short film The Ruffians, directed by Mills. … Read entire article »

Toofy Film Fest showcases great indie films

Berm-Tech seems like a typical business. Employees work in cubicles, management holds meetings, and everyone can’t wait for their lunch break. But the staff of Berm-Tech are not your average office workers. In fact, Berm-Tech is an organization run by vampires, or Netherbeasts as they prefer to be called. That’s the plot of Netherbeast Incorporated, one of the great independent films shown at this year’s Toofy Film Fest in Boulder, Colorado. Toofy Film Fest is a fun mix of fashion, music, art and film. The festival includes fashion shows, live music performances, and two days of film screening at the Boulder Theater. This was my second year in attendance at Toofy and, like last year, I enjoyed almost every short film and feature that I saw there. For me, the shorts have always … Read entire article »
