Two MICA-Affiliated Films Accepted Into Independent Filmmaker Labs Program

Faculty, Alumni, Students and Staff Contribute to Selected Projects

Posted 05.16.11 by MICA Communications

"Us Naked: The Adventures of Trixie and Monkey"

IFP has accepted two MICA-affiliated film projects into its Independent Filmmaker Labs program--the only program in the world currently supporting first-time feature directors in post-production to complete, market and distribute their films.

About the films and MICA connections:

Us Naked: The Adventures of Trixie and Monkey

Weirdo meets high-glam in Us Naked, the story of Trixie Little and The Evil Hate Monkey, a thirty-something couple sharing a peculiar life as an acrobatic-burlesque super-duo. From overdrawn checkbooks to major theatrical productions, Trixie and Monkey endure life on the road to make big eyelashes and monkey ears a full-time reality. But how long can they keep this up? A trailer is available here.

The Twelve O'Clock Boyz

In Baltimore, an illegal dirt bike group converging from all corners of the city takes to the streets. They are called "The Twelve O'Clock Boyz." Pug, a young child growing up in a combative West Baltimore hood, finds solace in the group.

Through the labs, IFP works to ensure that talented emerging voices receive the support, resources and industry exposure necessary to reach audiences. To learn more about the program, visit www.ifp.org/labs.
