Last night I went to the 2002 Zeitgeist Int'l Film Festival, Volume 2 held at the Zeitgeist Bar and Guesthaus in the Mission. It was packed and standing-room only in the beer garden and it was a blast. There were great shorts and crappy shorts. My favorites were "Dupe and Destroy" a music video using cold war era clips and original techno music, "Is it Time to Swap?" a 50's-era educational film spoof on swinging, a stop action lego action film and a piece about an underground seminar for beggars (can't remember the title on those).

I talked to the guy who shot the lego stop action piece (it took him months) and gave him my contact info so I can get him in touch with my friend Jeff Balletine in Atlanta who is also a stop action filmmaker and has a public access tv show which would probably love to show it.

They handed out 3-D glasses for one film which turned out to be about as 3-D as my ass. Well, I mean, as 3-D as any other movie. That was a pretty good prank, getting a couple of hundred people to wear those cheap 3-D glasses for no reason.
