The free, open, all-ages event will run from 5:30–7 p.m. at the Tin Theater, located at 923 SW 152nd Street in Olde Burien. The 11-minute film will be screened at 6 p.m., and will be followed by a Q&A presentation by some of the filmmakers. “M.O.P.Z.” tells the story of a lazy janitor who builds a robot to do his dirty work. Only the story is told in fast-forward in just 11 minutes! Imagine watching a 30-minute Canadian 1990s sitcom on a VHS player that’s stuck in fast-forward, including with sped-up audio and tons of great sight gags, fake commercials and incredibly hilarious scenes. Directed by Todd Rohal, and Written by Rohal and Benjamin Kasulke, “M.O.P.Z.” has been featured on the Adult Swim cable network. It was Executive Produced by Laccey Levitt and Mischa Jakupcak, and Co-Produced by Megan Griffiths. The production was shot Jan. 9-17, 2016, with Gevin Booth serving as the Art Director (full credits are here). This will be a very fun, funny and informative night, which you won’t want to miss – and we recommend watching the film at least once all the way through before attending: [embed][/embed] And if you felt like you missed some of the gags, here’s a slowed-down version: [embed][/embed]]]>
