Silent but Artsy
Im not good with words -- thats why I make silent films, says Clifton Childree, winner of LegalArts Native Seeds II grant. One of his submissions for the $3,000 award was Something Awful, an edgy tale of a turn-of-the-century fisherman who snares a Victorian womans derrière in his trap. After guzzling a potent oyster concoction to cure the squirts, he discovers the connection between her buttocks and an arcade game called Shitty Britches at a local bar.
Im building a movie set in my back yard, Childree informs. The projects I do often take a year and can become expensive. Im working on a new slapstick episode called It Gets Worse, and the Native Seeds grant has helped get the wheels rolling on that. Tonight at 7 at The Standard, LegalArt will celebrate Childrees achievements and raise funds for its grant program awards. The artsy event will boast world-famous bingo, swimming, raffle prizes, music, and more, organizers say. Oops -- lets not forget about enough complimentary Grolsch to float a tub!
