Financing Your Funny Video
Writing a hilarious script for a short video is easy, the hard part is getting it made. How do you keep costs low and quality high without busting your bank account? Which websites are taking pitches and funding the funny? The Apiary sits down with producers of some of the funniest videos online to learn how things get done.
Panelists Include: Paul Briganti (Landline TV), Tim Bierbaum (Serious Lunch), Andrew Baron (Rocketboom), Michelle Vargas (GraceNMichelle, Action Pals), Clayton Early (Harvard Sailing Team), and Candy Slice Comedy
Moderated by: Nate Sloan and Keith Huang (Editors of The Apiary)

2010 Friars Club Comedy Film Festival Lineup

The lineup for the second annual Friars Club Comedy Film Festival in New York was announced this week. It's the nation's only comedy film fest and will run September 23rd through October 1st, opening with a screening at the legendary Ziegfeld theater and closing with the Friars Club Roast of Quentin Tarantino. I went to last year's opening of A Serious Man, those were some star studded good times, man.

The schedule this time around is highlighted by the world premiere of Brother's Justice from Dax Shepard and David Palmer, the documentary American: The Bill Hicks Story, the winner of the 2010 Edinburgh Film Festival for Best New British Feature Skeletons, the film Tiny Furniture--which won a prize at SXSW and was part of Rooftop Films' recent summer programming--a bunch of other movies, shorts including those made by the winners of the FRISC competition, panels and more.
