The Million McFly March On October 21, 2015, 1,000 fans of the Back to the Future films gathered to celebrate the films and to raise money for Parkinson’s research through Teamfox. The event took place at the Burger King in Burbank, California, the first real-world location used in the films (“Doc’s Garage” was located in the parking lot used for the March), and featured costume and prop contests, a hoverboard decorating contest, and a performance by the rock group Minor Strut, fronted by Mark Campbell (the singing voice of Marty McFly) for a performance of Johnny B. Goode.

Vice-Precedence: Being Number Two in the White House 

The first feature-length documentary on the Vice Presidency, Vice-Precedence is also a successful blog and upcoming book on the subject. Writers Matt Saxe and Jason Klamm approach the office with a level of humor intended to wipe away the typical pretense of awe-inspiration, opting instead for a truthful examination of one of the United States’ least-understood offices.

Tunak Tunak Tun  

Following on the heels of the internet sensation of the same name by Bhangra pop star Daler Mehndi, Tunak Tunak Tun, starring comedic actor Dan Gomiller, was the first parody of the viral music video, and went viral in its own right in 2001, not long after it was first released. The video was even honored as a featured link on Mr. Mehndi’s site for several years.

Dinosaurs: They Certainly Were Big 

Famed paleontologist Sue Hendrickson said of writer/director Jason Klamm “He made science palatable to the public, which is the mission of scientists that they seem to fail at and he succeeds. I hope to shake his hand someday.” Dinosaurs is quite simply a short film about dinosaurs, and it was one of the first online videos to play on an airline, when it became part of Frontier Airlines’ in -flight television in 2004.

Inform Nation  

StolenDress’ first web series, Inform Nation was chosen early on as a contender for the joint cable TV venture of Richard Belzer and National Lampoon radio entitled “Comedy Express TV.” Following in the steps of Dinosaurs: They Certainly Were Big, Inform Nation tackled real subjects with humor, trying to condense entire issues into an entirely too-short amount of time.
