48 HR Film Project's Mission
The 48 Hour Film Project's mission is to advance filmmaking and promote filmmakers. Through its festival/competition, the Project encourages filmmakers and would-be filmmakers to get out there and make movies. The tight deadline of 48 hours puts the focus squarely on the filmmakers—emphasizing creativity and teamwork skills. While the time limit places an unusual restriction on the filmmakers, it is also liberating by putting an emphasis on "doing" instead of "talking."
After being out of it for a while working on our upcoming EP From Me To You, we are finally returning to the one and only Haven for a kick ass night of music-ness and rocking out-age. This is a CONNECTIONS LIVE show, so we'll have tickets for an amazingly low $5 and also hook you up with a free drink. During out set we are gonna hook it up with some pitchers of beer and after our set we are throwing down for some Pizza's. So come party with us !!!
Last Minute Stars embodies original, catchy, and unique music. Their high-energy live shows leave audiences with a clear understanding of the difference between hearing a band and seeing a band. Drawing influences from the likes of Rage Against the Machine, Incubus, Lady Gaga, and other various artists, Last Minute Stars strives to break away from the pack and help to define the next generation of modern music.
Originally formed in Gainesville, FL by Joshua Arias (vocals), Antoine Rohlehr (drums) and Mike Alosa (bass), Last Minute Stars moved to Orlando, FL in the summer of 2009. With the addition of Mike Rodriguez (guitar) in the summer of 2010, they have made a name for themselves in the Orlando music scene.
After the departure of Joshua Arias in the summer of 2011, Last Minute Stars found local singer/actress Emily Cutting to take over lead vocals. Last Minute Stars has been gaining new fans on both Facebook and Myspace, and has consistently held a position in the top 200 rock bands in the Orlando area on Reverbnation.
They have had the pleasure of sharing the stage with national acts TrustCompany and Smile Empty Soul, as well as up and coming acts Ghost of Gloria and Traverser. Having rocked venues in Tampa, Gainesville, and Miami, they will be playing throughout Florida in the months to come. Last Minute Stars always sets the bar high, and intends to leave a lasting impression with every audience they meet.

Dutch Book is a story about overcoming the odds and making it. It's a story about escape and success.
The film's name, Dutch Book is a gambling term meaning a sure thing or no-risk bet. The story follows a young man named Will on a one week journey of escape from the financial hold placed on his father by a local bookie named Joe. Will's father Billy Sr. was a catcher for the 1977 world champion New York Yankees; sadly though , his promising career was cut short. Now 33 years later Billy Sr. is both an alcoholic and a gambling addict that owes the wrong kind of bookie 20 grand. Joe is that bookie; he's old, mean, and always on the lookout to exploit someone in a difficult situation - Billy has become his most recent victim. Joe has not only taken Billy's prized championship ring, but he has forcibly employed Will(Adam Lopez) at his pool hall to work off Billy Sr.'s debt. Will soon decides that he cannot spend his days working off a debt that is not even his, so with some privilged information of a fixed horserace, he places a few no risk bets in an effort to free himself from his father's obligation. With a twist and unexpected turn arising from each wager placed - with the help of a con-artist named Cal(Justin Price) - and an ex-convict named Charley(Michael Anthony Spady) - Will learns that even a sure thing is accompanied by inherent risk.
Starring: Adam Lopez, Richard Edson, Christian Monzon, Robert Miano, Belladonna, Michael Anthony Spady, Mike Santi, Justin Price
