When it comes to Jeffrey Garcia and Dream-Atomic Films, you know that you’re about to be in for one hell of a unique ride. Up next to bat is the short film Whimsy & Hester, the story of conjoined twins attempting to lose their virginity by prom night. With an all-star San Marcos cast in tow, this looks like it will be one for the books. Wake The Dead Coffee House will be hosting a screening on October 11, so be sure to check it out if you’re in the area.
School is back, but there’s no need to worry. DC4PREZ of THE PNTHN has some advice for you in the form of Skip School, another dynamite music video from Jeffrey Garcia. The song is fire, there are some familiar faces and places in the midst of the video, and the whole things looks like a million bucks. With the upcoming release of the full length project from THE PNTHN (titled [From Disorder…]), I can only imagine that their will be more collaborations of this nature in the works. I’m gonna keep my eyes and ears open, and here’s to hoping that others do the same.

Straight out of the most wonderful version of left field comes Kenny Casanova‘s latest music video, Poison. This one, directed by Jeffrey Garcia, is a wonderful journey into the mind of a brutally honest MC. The visual counterparts provided for this musical deep dive hit every beat brilliantly, both tonally and emotionally. This video gets better with repeated watchings, and the song reveals itself in layers. Props to Kenny Casanova for a dope concept on song and video, and big ups to Jeffrey Garcia for nailing it. Definitely give this one a like and a share.

Jeffrey Garcia and the gang are back at it again. This time around, the project is a faux-TV pilot titled MYSTERIES OF THE UNIVERSE, and it stars several familiar faces from the world of the Jeffy’s Playhouse YouTube channel. The show has plenty of offbeat humor, and the look falls somewhere between the BBC version of Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy and Tim & Eric’s Awesome Show. Even though the project is supposedly faux, it’d be nice to see the gang pop up again for more adventures.
San Marcos icon Furly Travis has always been a creative spirit. His music pushes all kinds of creative boundaries, his painting style has a deceptive depth to it that is not always obvious upon first viewing, and there has always been an experimental film director budding within him. Recent creative stints with indie director Jeffrey Garcia seemed to have stoked those flames within Furly, and The Failed Artist is the first of many flames to catch fire. The short film is a David Lynch-esque view into the search for inspiration, and even with its amplified narrative, them film is very easy to relate to on a gut level. If this is the first of what are hopefully many creative endeavors, I am curious as to what the future holds in store.
After a relatively strong 2016, San Marcos-based filmmaker Jeffrey Garcia has been in rapid attack mode via a series of short projects released in the last couple of months. The latest is sunflower, starring Bri Lee of Lambchop fame, and Jeffrey Garcia also makes a brief appearance in this one. The future seems to hold nothing but entertainment for us that are staying in the know about Jeffy’s Playhouse.
