Meet new filmmaker friends at the Filmmaker's Alliance Screening Monday 3/21/11
Last Minute Scheduling for some of us to get together at the Filmmakers Alliance Screening Monday Night.
After there screening, meet up with me and we'll get coffee at the coffee shop next door.
The next FA Screening at The Echo Park Film Center will be Monday, March 21st at 7:30 p.m. The line-up of films will be announced soon!
Come and see what FA members and other members of the LA and global filmmaking community are up to creatively, and support the great work that the EPFC people are doing in our community. The center is a volunteer run organization that offers fantastic super 8mm film classes, youth classes, and much more, so we do ask that you leave a $5 donation at the door to help keep the Center going.
There is a brief Q&A after each film, not to mention complimentary food & drinks. So come on out and eat, drink, connect and watch!

Dock Ellis & The LSD No-No
by James Blagden
4 min. 32 sec.
In celebration of the greatest athletic achievement by a man on a psychedelic journey, No Mas presents the animated tale of Dock Ellis' legendary LSD no-hitter. The piece's s unorthodox origins are nearly as compelling as the short film itself. The film combines the former Pittsburgh Pirate's own account of the 1970 no-hitter he pitched while high on LSD with Blagden's totally original visual style. The resulting animated short has been hailed as, among other things, among the greatest baseball films ever.
