Here’s a little trailer we made to introduce the screening tonight.

We’ll be hosting the show in collaboration with The Big Screen Plaza. The films were selected based on the vision of the individual artists, but their common thread is they are all uniquely beautiful + warm, but not fuzzy. We kill fuzzy.

More info can be found here.

Enjoy the adorable overload,
Joy + Noelle

Still from "The First Time CeeCee Did Acid" by Noelle Melody

Odds are the show is probably your basic dumb shit . But then you sort of think well maybe it’s beyond dumb, maybe it’s a ra-tard. Maybe it’s something really cool that you don’t even know about. And uh, and you started feeling like you definitely wanna be a part of it.

I’ve got to celebrate this teaser for the show, created by Taylor Armstrong.

Showcasing our submissions of half-cocked short-shorts, we promise you’ll be disturbed and/or left in great dismay.

It’s all happening at Glasslands this Wednesday, July 13th at 8pm — come experience some dumb shit AND drink a cold beer at the same time.

Remember that Peculiar Parade thing?

The Peculiar Picture Parade Joy and I put together at 92YTribeca last night couldn’t have been more fun.  The theater is small which makes for a really chill screening with the nearest and dearest.

Look at all the pretty faces

Joy and I surprised everyone with a film we did just for the Parade called “Place Stamp Here.”  It’s based on a short story by Kelly Sharp and the three of us made the film in about a month.  The music was done by The Chandeliers with Zach Knox on piano.

Thanks again to Brett W. Thompson for making the event flyer.

Brett Thompson rocks

There was a fantastic audience reaction from each film.  Our Q+A session with the filmmakers covered animation, crunch berries, sex and death.

Jessica Polaniecki, Brett Thompson, Dusty Grella, Signe Baumane and Kelly Sharp

Joy Vaccese, Lori Samsel, Katie Cropper and Noëlla Borie

Please enjoy the Signal Film by Taylor Armstorng – it is a 25 second documentary about how Joy and I put this lil animation show together.
