    Jane’s Underrated (HOUSTON!) Short Film of the Month

    This is a film by Albert Gonzalez – not one of the most successful hackers in history, but Texan filmmaker who’s sure to be a star of drama film in the future.

    Jane’s Underrated (COMICBOOK!) Short Film of the Month

    This month, it’s not so much underrated as WHY ISN’T IT A TV SERIES? It’s the turn of Michael Ashton, YouTube demigod of the short film genre.

He’s Tim from The Office, Arthur Dent, Ed Robinson, Ricky C in Ali G Indahouse (yeah!! Remember?!) and he was, of course, Declan in Shaun of the Dead. So imagine […]
