SOMETHINGS GONNA LIVE (2009, 77 min.) is an intimate portrait of life, friendship and the movies, as recalled by some of Hollywood's greatest cinema artists. A follow-up by Daniel Raim to his Oscar-nominated documentary, THE MAN ON LINCOLN'S NOSE, the film profiles renowned art directors Robert Boyle (NORTH BY NORTHWEST, THE BIRDS), Henry Bumstead (TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD, THE STING), Harold Michelson (STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE, CATCH-22) and Albert Nozaki (THE WAR OF THE WORLDS, THE TEN COMMANDMENTS), as well as master cinematographers Conrad Hall (IN COLD BLOOD, BUTCH CASSIDY AND THE SUNDANCE KID) and Haskell Wexler (IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT, WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF?). From snapshots, sketches, and vintage footage interwoven with interviews and new scenes of these octagenarian artists at work, we get a behind-the-scenes look at moviemaking in the golden age of cinema. As we watch iconic scenes of our collective imagination emerge from their drawings, models, matte paintings, and sets, we hear tales of Mae West, "Hitch," and DeMille, and experience their longing for the sense of community that made working on these films so great. Not a nostalgia piece, but an exploration of the artist's moral obligation to truthfully portray the human condition, SOMETHING'S GONNA LIVE is a deeply moving and thought-provoking celebration of the human stories behind the glamorous edifice of Hollywood.

    DIR Jared Drake SCR Jared Drake, Brandon Drake PROD Jory Weitz, James Henney, Henry Capanna George Washington Winsterhammerman lives an ordinary life. He has a wife, a kid, a house and a boat. Every day George gets in his minivan and goes to work as a Level Three Tunt at the Jeffers Corporation, the largest and most profitable corporation in the history of humankind. Though he lives an utterly comfortable life, George is growing nervous. People around him have begun exploding—literally. Fearing he might be next, George visits his doctor and learns that his recurring dreams are a symptom of impending explosion. Unfortunately, George cant stop dreaming, and as the explosion epidemic worsens, he is forced to question the life hes been living. This quirky and distinctive story, utterly original in every way, features inspired casting, particularly with acclaimed actor and comedian Zach Galifianakis as George. He is joined by the delightful Judy Greer and terrific indie mainstay James LeGros. VISIONEERS, the debut film from the sibling filmmaking team of Brandon and Jared Drake, offers a darkly comic view of a world so skewed it can't help but remind us of our own.
