The second edition of the Flick My Clip Film Festival at Go Bananas — organized by Cincinnati/Dayton-area comics Ryan Singer, Alex Stone and Mike Cody — features short films made by not only area comics, but ones from around the country. “We’ve got one from Cleveland,” says Singer. “There’s a woman who is sending stuff from California. But there was additional postage on hers and I just haven’t gotten to the post office to pay that, so that’s kind of an annoying thing,” he says with a laugh.
For many of the short films (and they are short, at five minutes or less) comics got together with filmmakers, each drawing from the others’ area of expertise. “There’s so much common interest there,” explains Singer. “It’s kind of like a mutually beneficiary society, because a lot of comics don’t have the know-how to do decent quality videos or shorts and I know filmmakers are always looking for people to do them.” If all continues to go well, a third edition will be held this summer. The Flick My Clip Film Festival takes place at Go Bananas in Montgomery Tuesday at 8 p.m. Tickets are $5.
