This Sunday, August 10, at 1:00 PM marks the occasion of yet another gathering of some of the finest in local filmmaking that the Central Florida area has to offer. FilmSlam # 8 is ready to go and features what appears to be a fascinating and eclectic mix of short films, including a doc about Disney pioneer Ub Iwerks (!), a mummy movie that’s got to better than the sequel that’s currently at the multiplex, and a doc about a proposed life-size statue of surf champion Kelly Slater in Cocoa Beach. The cherry on the top however, is the inclusion of the mini sci-fi epic produced at the Enzian’s KidFest Young Filmmakers Summer Camp just a couple of weeks ago–MISSION Y (BECAUSE MISSION X FAILED). Congratulations to all the 5th – 8th grade campers that made it happen, as well as writers/supervisors Jay Henderson and Jon Jones.
Now come on out and show your support, Orlando!
