  3. "It's a Black Thang!" follows a day in the life of a typical white guy striving to get in touch with his black side.

    This short was originally intended to be an episode of Eric Cattani and Dennis Looney's original sitcom effort, "Hollywoodn't." Due to production restraints, it became a standalone project instead.

    It was shot over the course of a single week in real locations in Las Vegas and Henderson, Nevada.

    The project was shot with a JVC GY-HD110U and edited with Apple's Final Cut Pro. Visual effects were created in Adobe After Effects.

    Written by: Eric Cattani
    Direction, cameras, and post-production by: Dennis Looney

    Featuring: London Mace, Ryan Smith, Chuck Prater, Diona Linardo, Allison Hart, and Tyler Greene.

Bridgetown Films, formerly Anthem Films and Anthem Film Works, is a production and post group based in the Portland, Oregon area.

Anthem Films was known for its offbeat short comedy projects, as can be witnessed by watching "Eating Disorder" or "It's a Black Thang," both of which received Editor's Pick honors at OpenFilm.com.

In late 2010, the Anthem Films name was sold and the group became known as Bridgetown Films. "Bridgetown" is a common nickname for the city of Portland, Oregon.

While Bridgetown's comedy roots from the Anthem Films era will continue, the group plans to expand into other genres and will integrate more visual effects work into future projects as well.

Bridgetown Films uses JVC's GY-HM100U as well as Canon DSLRs.
