Make it Happen: Lost Film Fest

This video was produced for our Make It Happen Project.

Make It Happen is a series of short documentaries profiling creative people pursuing their dreams through projects with DIY roots.

We wish that this documentary 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.

Make It Happen: Lost Film Fest on Youtube

This morning we uploaded Lost Film Fest to Youtube… in two parts. No more videos longer than ten minutes on the Tube. I have to say that it’s now official, we prefer Vimeo. Check out our Vimeo Page and the new Make It Happen Channel.

On the upside, Youtube didn’t strip the audio. If you like the Gogol Bordello song in the first part, now you can click and buy it. It’s the last song in the video though, not the first.

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.

Lost in Making it Happen


That little blue progress bar represents how close we are to uploading Make It Happen: Lost Film Fest. It’s been a long time coming.

We’ve been stealing an hour here (and a week there) to work on the project between paying gigs. We’re hoping that one day the trickling of videos will become a down pour. Until then, enjoy the Lost Film Fest screens below. The video is coming shortly. For more information about the Make It Happen Project click here.

…And if you don’t feel like clicking, you can watch “Make It Happen: Lowcard” (An official selection at the Skateboard Film Festival) right now:

Stay tuned for Make It Happen: Lost Film Fest.
