I was secretly hoping that someone else would write some florid post about the magical experience of this weekend’s Movie Cram at UCB as yesterday I was too tired to express how I felt and just wanted to reblog with a “^this!!” and go back to bed.
Between midnight Friday and midnight Saturday, over 100 people collaborated to write, shoot, score, and edit a full-length comedy movie. 20 directors, 13 writers, 8 musicians, 70+ actors, and a fistful of producers did this, and it was NOT A HUGE MESS and ACTUALLY ASTOUNDINGLY FUNNY and I HOPE IT IS ONLINE SOON. The movie, A New McDonalds, is about three best friends who love McDonalds so much they decide to open a McDonalds of their very own in their apartment. It is great.
