September 30th, 2016 by Mike

Our new short doc is now streaming on The New York Times website! “Supreme Court v. the American Voter” showcases the infamous 2013 court case that gutted the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and the impact it will have on the upcoming election. The film was produced/directed by Kelly Duane de la Vega and Jessica Anthony, and written/co-directed by our very own Mike Nicholson. Big thanks to editor Don Swaynos and graphic/title designer Lauren Dumasius for getting it over the finish line.

For the fifth year, we’re back at the Moontower Comedy and Oddity Festival, working late into the night interviewing the funniest comics in America with local legends Kerri Lendo & John Merriman.
