Hammer Museum Open Projector Night

Open Projector Night Winners: Fall 2015

November 3, 2015

On October 20 as part of our recurring program Open Projector Night, filmmakers were invited to screen their own short films or videos and vie for a prize at L.A.’s most raucous independent film fest.

The Sklar Brothers—who have hosted shows on Comedy Central, MTV, and ESPN—were emcees for the night. There were many talented submissions, but we were forced to pick our favorites. In no particular order:

Anthony Booth, Lili Trooper

"The song spoke visually to me. Everything you see is what I was mentally watching while listening before actually creating. I always wanted a Christmas release too."

Adam Boren Bennett, Devil in Your Eyes

"Don't underestimate a child's love for her parents."

Video for this film is not currently available.

Jorge Suarez, Andrew Gans, Cary Wayne Moore, Border Hawk

Video for this film is not currently available.

Michael Lyle, The Eye (winner from our May 2015 Open Projector Night)

The Eye is a comedic short about what happens when a few hipster friends succumb to the allure of an occult ritual.

"Aaron returns home from a big trip to discover that his roommates are acting strangely due to a large inflatable eye.”
