10 Michigan haunts

Posted By on Thu, Oct 31, 2013 at 3:28 PM

Every month for the last few years, the Mitten Movie Project has taken to the screen, showing some of the best short subject films from around the state and beyond. It happens the first Tuesday night of every month, half-screening, half-party, a way to showcase local talent and bring local movie folk together.

If you’re a local filmmaker, you probably already know what’s on offer. But for those considering plopping down $10 for some unknown films, it can be a gamble. Well, now, through the miracle of Internet video, those who are unsure what to expect can drink in some teasers when making up their minds.



For a gander at one of the evening’s more serious films, take a look at this clip for It All Adds Up, a doc about Wayne State University’s Math Corps program.

For a peek at a documentary about feet, called, um, Feet, there’s a trailer online to help get you in step with what that’s about.

But best of all, you can view the final entry in its entirety, Snippy's New Year. When animated clay figures discover booze, can Plasticine puke be far behind? (We thought not.) And if you like the little blue guy, he now has his own website: snippyworld.com. Enjoy!



Mitten Movie Project is Feb. 3, at the Main Art Theatre (118 N. Main St., Royal Oak; 248-263-2111); mix-and-mingle reception starts at 6:30 p.m., films roll at 7:30 p.m.; afterglow at Mr. B’s (215 S. Main St., Royal Oak; 248-399-0017); tickets are $8 in advance, $10 at door. See myspace.com/mittenmovieproject for more info.
