Taking part in the 72-Hour Film Race, presented by the San Marcos Cinema Club, and being a part of a team that placed second, was a true honor. Being connected to so many talented filmmakers and personalities was an equal honor. Here are a few of the other entries that I managed to find on YouTube, including the contest winner How Art Makes You Feel…

The San Marcos Cinema Club is quickly becoming one of the better fixtures in the town of San Marcos, Texas. The group holds a number of events and festival directly designed to promote and foster creative filmmakers in the city, as well as bring fans of film together to appreciate these creatives. One of their recent events, the 72-Hour Film Race, recently took place. I got together with a handful of friends and collaborators, we were given a set of prompts (sci-fi, barber scene, ‘EL RITO LIBERDADO DEL AGUA’, mural incorporation and a bonus location via a riddle), and we embarked upon the journey that resulted in The Perpendicular. For something made in just under three days, I’d say we did pretty well… the judges thought so too, as we came in second place. Check it out, share it, leave a like or a comment, and keep your eyes open for more fun from the San Marcos Cinema Club.
If there is one thing that Faylita Hicks has never been afraid to do, it’s been the process of diving deep into any given topic, no matter how uncomfortable it may be, and exploring it with the detail and urgency it deserves. I mention urgency because Faylita recently took part in the San Marcos Cinema Club‘s 72 Hour Film Race contest, and With No River was the result of her 72 hours. Needless to say, I am excited to see what Faylita and her venture into the growth of her brand, Arrondi Creative Productions, brings forth. Props to her for addressing the homeless situation in the central Texas corridor as well.
After many years of doing Chief and TheDoomsdayDevice videos totally solo (one-man crew), it was nice to finally be able to work with someone else for the production side of things. That someone else was the incredibly talented independent filmmaker Jeffrey Garcia of Dream-Atomic Productions. A fellow member of the San Marcos Cinema Club, Money From Home was the opportunity for us to make something that would stand up to the quality of other independent work out there. I had faith in the song and faith in the vision, and I knew that I could edit something strong together. Jeffrey came through on the photography, and even lended a handful of solid ideas. I am very happy with the effort, and very proud of the result. Share it, and spread the word.
