Make It Happen: Lost Film Fest

This documentary encapsulates a couple of nights we spent following around Scott Beibin and Liz Cole of the Lost Film Fest/ Evil Twin Booking Agency. It features shows at the Bubble House in Philadelphia, PA and the Change You Want to See Gallery in Brooklyn, NYC.

The video was produced for our Make It Happen Project. Make It Happen is a series of short documentaries profiling creative people that are pursuing their dreams through DIY projects.

Thanks to Scott Beibin and Liz Cole for letting us stick cameras in their faces, for setting up shows, giving us access to a plethora of films and photos (and for being patient).

We wish that this video came close to capturing the carnival atmosphere of activism and underground culture swirling around Scott and Liz. If they ever roll through your town, you must check them out. Until then, enjoy.

    The brilliant colors, the patchwork of video textures,and the uncanny music made my senses unwillingly smell and taste the Lost Film Fest. It felt like Scott and Liz broke into my home and started projecting interesting vids on my living room wall. But being invaded and inspired is the whole point of LFF and DIY. I almost forgot that DIY is not just three letters but a rebel anthem screaming 'nothing is impossible'. Keep it up tj.

    Cool kids club. Bears no likeness to useful activism.
