Now let’s get all types of informed for Thanksgiving Week including a camera-phone film festival and a 38-hour long marathon of comedy…

Phone It In
Created by Chris O’Connor, Dan Angelucci, Alex Grubard & Clay Hereth, Phone It In is a monthly film festival, made up entirely of videos that people shot on their cell phones. Is that sketch? It certainly could be and it’s definitely an awesome opportunity. So go to this show, enjoy it, and then make it your business to get your phone charged and start shooting that sketch you always said you’d shoot but never did. Seriously, get your shit together and check out the guidelines here at their website here at the link.
