Treo Mobile Film Festival
"It sounds easy, but making a 60-second film, and a funny one too, is a great creative challenge. This festival is kind of like the Oscars for the time-deprived," said John Henson. Essman and Henson will also sit on the panel of festival judges, where they will be joined by actor-comedian Adam Ferrara (The Job, Rescue Me) and meta-magicians Penn and Teller. The judges will select 60 finalists, whose work will be screened at the Treo Film Festival awards show. "Made-for-mobile film is a fantastic new medium," said Susie Essman. "We can't wait to see how funny people can be in 60 seconds or less."
