The Penny Marshall Project – now on Youtube!


By Greg Pak
Approximately one million years ago, I directed a short film based on a brilliant idea by the brilliant Lisa Jolley. It’s a Blair Witch spoof called “The Penny Marshall Project,” and it stars Lisa, Todd Stashwick, and Bobby Nakanishi as three filmmaking titans who get lost in the woods while searching for their independent spirit. Todd reminded me about the film today on the Twitter and suggested I put it online, and that sounded like a great idea. So enjoy!
