For one year we fought burnout by turning down all paying work and making whatever we wanted. The result is Project K. Written, directed, edited, designed and starring us. Chaos. Ben's brainchild The Three Cowboys has

always been a standout.

Early on, we made holiday shorts every year, everyone could do whatever they wanted as long as the films had

some sort of holiday theme. Adam's Quintet was one of the first of these shorts and probably the first real Project K short.

I'm not even sure what to say about The Incredibly Miserable Video Dating Editing Computer except that it's dark, childish and guest stars one of our producers at the time Brendan Fitzgerald (who now is a big gun at Vice and makes great documentaries). Enjoy.

A Tale of the Sea is one of the first Project K shorts we shot, and we did such a poor job on the writing and performing fronts, we had to shoot the whole thing again. A maritime epic.

Mariah, a sincere and moving tribute to Mariah Carey's classic rendition, was another of the early holiday shorts. Shot in a mere 20 or 30 takes.

A Day At The Shore. Nothing beats a good (or not so good) crotch hit joke...

Ben's first real short with us and another of our early holiday spots. How and why this works so well is hard to say.

What could be more badassed than vintage recordings, romance and deranged billionaires? Not much. And all in less than 31 seconds!

For some strange reason we love watching this guy get tortured. The Amazing Zorpan!

Yikes. Sometimes it's all about burning coneheads and awkwardness.

Another of the early Project K tests. What? features legal librarian Todd Hillmer (the backup dancing cowboys) and a song by The Hives.
