"What a delightful and ingenious film... I'm especially impressed with the uncanny recreation of silent-movie comedy." Leonard Maltin

Featuring Helen Slater, Bruno Kirby, and physical theatre troupe The Bubalaires

29 min. Color/Black & White 35mm/Dolby Stereo

An Outcast goes on a journey of the imagination in "Heavenzapoppin'!". Mixing the styles of early black & white silents and modern color films, it is a fast-paced ride through a slapstick world of poor Peasant Villagers, battling Actors, costumed Bears, and harried Directors, all set in a big Movie Studio playground.

"Heavenzapoppin'!" was shot on location in Hollywood and the Paramount Studios backlot. It has screened at film festivals around the world, at the Director's Guild Theatre, and at the Laemmle's Sunset 5 theatres in Los Angeles. It is the recipient of the Gold Apple for Short Fiction from the National Educational Media Network, with additional awards from the USA Film Festival, Film Fest New Haven, Hardacre Film Festival, and the Gravity Free Festival of New Comedy.
