The 2nd Annual Denver American Indian Festival: Bridges to Respect

We’re really happy to have the opportunity to film another commercial for local TV spots here in Colorado for Bridges to Respect. We love this event, and are very thankful that we were asked once again to help.

The 48 Hour Film Project 2015: Scandal Under the Big Top

The thin light between love and hate.

I picked the Genre “Drama” out of a hat at 7pm on Friday July 31, and we had to make a film with these following items: character “Trip or Trish Gomez, a retired Circus Performer”, prop of “notebook” and line of dialogue “There’s not much time”. We handed our film in at 6:30pm on Sunday August 2.

Its safe to say that we had more team drama off camera than in our film, but it all came together. Does it make any sense? Thats up to you the viewer to decide haha.

I sat down with Zen Magnets owner Shihan Qu to film some documentary footage for his latest video. We filmed in downtown Denver off the 16th street mall, in Writers Square (15th and Larimer). You can find an in-depth article on Shihan’s battle with the CPSC here at the Westword. Shihan has done several interviews on the subject, and has been featured in print and online magazines such as The New York Times and Vice.

The 48 Hour Film Project 2014 Winner:

Best Use of Character “The Pitch” by ILYAFILMS.

On the first weekend of August 2014, ILYAFILMS participated in the 48 Hour Film Project. Please take a moment to watch our short film! On Friday night at 7pm I drew the genre “Fish out of Water” out of hat, and all the teams had to make a film with a character that was a writer, a map as a prop, and the line of dialogue “I don’t know what I’m doing here.” It was a sleepless weekend, but I had a wonderful team!
