BOARD has been named an official selection at two very exiting film festivals. We are excited to announce we'll be screening at the Golden Door International Film Festival and Coney Island Film Festival.
While we've been hard at work finishing last years films, prepping out new projects and paying the bills with our freelance work, Magnalux has secretly produced another little project for your viewing pleasure.
A few weeks ago, Adam was once again lucky enough to collaborate on an exciting project with the video team at NeueHouse. As part of their Summer programming, NeueHouse showcased the stunning performance and choreography of Marie-Agnès Gillot & Blanca Li.
This week's MAGNALUX MYSTERY THEATRE is David McElfresh's A LOTUS 'TIL RECKONING.
David McElfresh's debut feature, now available on Vimeo, is a depraved, auteuristic playground, seething with ferocity and delight, yet constantly on the verge of becoming a full-on nightmare.
"I wanted to see a raw, honest character piece. I'm not really interested in story as much as I am with character and motivation. It's my belief if you create complicated people with relatable problems and selfish motivations, which we all have, you can entertain people in the same way as, what has become, a monotonous Hollywood film structure. Script and preparation. That should always take that most time, frustration and sweat. "

This week's MAGNALUX MYSTERY THEATRE is Sean Feuer's CRAZY MIKE.
Like all great film comedies, CRAZY MIKE packs a one-two punch: zany laughs, and dramatic sentiment. Although it's completely absurd (the main character gets stabbed in the neck with a prison toothbrush), it has a ton of heart. The mixture of 90s-era nostalgia and dark suburban madness is just fantastic.
