|Destin Daniel Cretton was born and raised in Maui, Hawaii where he spent three summers picking pineapples in the fields near his home. He's written and directed four award-winning short films, including SHORT TERM 12. His first feature I AM NOT A HIPSTER played the 2012 Sundance Film Festival.|
I buy a filmmaker lunch and in trade they give me a short film made for the cost of the lunch. It started by accident – and necessity. In all, 50 short films have been commissioned (or eaten). Rules and ideas based on whatever we talked about at lunch are written on a napkin contract. While each film has its own logic, it’s all about a variety of tastes. The overall metaphor is about community. It is very easy to help a filmmaker. Buy one lunch today. –Mike Plante
