Cortos (short 1 min. films)

Last year’s Third Annual Corto Film festival was a blast! It took place at Marta’s Masia (farm house) in the country, a place I will describe in a future blog. Like most of Marta’s parties, it was a sleep over. We rented a big cargo van so we could bring the dogs and also sleep in the van for the “camping” part. There were a total of 27 1 minute films shown, projected onto a big outdoor screen. Ours didn’t win but I am told they scored well. The one that did win was more “conceptual” and a bit artsy fartsy. It was way cool to be a part of such a fun event.

This is one of the 3 cortos (short films) I entered in the 3rd annual corto festival last year. Mark and I wrote the music for this one. That’s me singing “meow meow meow meow meow”.

BURN IT DOWN! – Music by Mark and I think its great! He’s such an accomlished guitar player too. The track sounds like Black Sabbath to me. The vocals are excellent! Very pop yet screaming with firey guitar solos. The images are edits from many of the chaotic, crazy festivals our city has.

This last one was of a party we had in New Zealand where we got everyone to do the silliest dance they know. We edited it together for the Corto Film Festival.

We plan to throw another such party here in Barcelona and film a Baile Tonto II for the next film festival, coming up in a few months, only it will feature new friends.
