      We've all worked in retail, or at least know someone who has. Those countless hours behind a register, waiting to go home, knowing that you're barely making minimum wage. Have you ever worked with a 17-year old who ran an underground drug business in your store through the merchandise, indirectly and coincidentally convincing the employees that profits are up? Has a cult priest ever been employed in your line of work, generously inviting you to his home to drink his special red punch? We got the idea for $1 Book Heaven because of these occurrences. There are so many stories to tell about the interesting characters we've worked with, and how awkward we've felt. By executing our vivacious and creative drive, we want to create a webisode series depicting these hilarious encounters to share with the world - scripts are written, crews are in line, and actors are appointed. With the help of Kickstarter and you, we want to bring the story of an old bookstore and it's crazy employees to life with a comedic and unique approach to give your abs a solid workout. Starring: Eric R. Noris, Dedeker Winston, Dwayne Flenoury, & Brandon Larson

                  Farrokh Namazi is of Persian origin, born and brought up in Pakistan. She grew up with Persian, Urdu and English being spoken in her home. Her love for literature brought her to the discovery of Rumi. This motivated her towards reading the poet in Persian, and made her realize that any translated literature loses some of its essence like a flower that has lost its fragrance. This talk is a brief introduction to Rumi. The recitation of his verses in the original Persian brings the melody and rhythm of his poetry to life.

                    Booktrailer do livro "A sordidez das pequenas coisas" (Não Editora, 2010), de Alessandro Garcia, Finalista do Prêmio Jabuti 2011 e segundo colocado no Prêmio Fundação Biblioteca Nacional. Direção: Frederico Cabral Finalização: Animake Áudio (loc.): Loop Locução: Clemente Viscaíno Alessandro Garcia descreve pequenas obsessões, traumas domésticos e aparentes irrelevâncias do dia a dia com profundidade e singeleza, construindo, com engenhosidade, universos distintos e complexos a partir de compostos repletos de simplicidade, valendo-se de elementos de lembrança pessoal e memória coletiva. O autor faz florescer a humanidade, mesmo que cercada de miséria e desencanto, em 20 contos que podem desde retomar o mistério dos quadros de crianças chorando do espanhol Giovanni Bragolin, até construir pequenos simulacros de Cortázar e ironias metaliterárias emulando David Foster Wallace. Alessandro Garcia nasceu em Porto Alegre, em 1979. Escritor e publicitário, participou das coletâneas Cenas de oficina (Unidade Editorial, 2000), Ficção de polpa – Volume 1 (Fósforo, 2007 – Não Editora, 2008) e Ficção de polpa – Volume 3 (Não Editora, 2009). Publicou em revistas literárias como Ficções, além de escrever para Digestivo Cultural, Cronópios, Scream & Yell, Portal Literal, entre outros.

                    • The Leaf Woman and the Centaur by Jordan Bruner

                      from Tin House / Added

                      The Leaf Woman and the Centaur is the first episode in Jordan's series about creation myths. Bruner writes that the film is “a stop-motion animation that looks to reconcile [creation myths—and to value] the act of experiencing the story as their central component. In the same way that Paradise Lost articulated the felix culpa (beneficial fall of man), or Dante's Inferno explored our ethical and spiritual scaffolding, The Leaf Woman and the Centaur will use the same basic tropes present in every creation myth to emphasize the value of an ancient experience that died with the cold logic of words.” Jordan Bruner: http://jordanbruner.net/ FuturePerfect: http://futureperfectproductions.org/about/ It is a particularly sensually engaging film. Puppets reminiscent of Eric Carle’s illustrations but more speckled in their fleshy bodies fight, embrace, and cover the earth with their seeds. Bruner made the film by building small puppets out of watercolor paper and wire, filming them in stop-motion with Dragonframe and compiling the whole with After Effects.
