Personally, I’m a pretty big sports fan. I love the grace, the passion, the intensity, the drama. But the business side of sport can be pretty ugly. Rooftop filmmaking alum Casimir Nozkowski and The Internets Celebrities have made a funny documentary about the new New York stadiums.
This doesn’t have much to do with Rooftop 2010, but, man, is it funny. A hilarious relatively-recent new literal video.
Watch as Jen Kirkman exposes the dark secrets of our first president…after drinking a bottle and a half of wine.
Dr. Dante (aka Mr. Hypnotism) says, “I was a conman. I was a good conman. I say what people want to hear, just like all conmen do.”
I remember my grandma fondly. She was sweet and caring, but a prickly old lady at times. But she was never this damn funny…
Watch an animated documentary that celebrates the greatest athletic achievement ever by a man on a psychedelic journey. Kids, don’t try this at home.
The film consists entirely of objects, and yet it’s surprisingly touching, revealing the character behind it and all the moments, people and places that make up a life. Because of the visual detail, if you saw this film at Rooftop, it’s worth a second, slower look in full screen mode.
What if mankind’s greatest predators were just big five-eyed blue puppy dogs looking to play? Would we still try to zap them? This adorable and energetic animated film by Jake Armstrong is a ton of fun, and also speaks to humanity’s wild daring and laughably bold ignorance.
This film scares the guts out of me.
On May 21, 2010, at the Rooftop romantic short films show Hopelessly Devoted, the opening band was Frances, and after they played, Rooftop Founder and Artistic Director Mark Elijah Rosenberg asked Stephanie Skaff, the singer/keyboard player, to marry him.
