CHESTER THE IDIOT (SHORT FILM) – FIREBALL MALIBU VLOG 882 – Fireball premieres a Short Film he did more than 20 years ago. It’s silly, stupid… and fun.

SYNOPSIS: CHESTER THE IDIOT (2019 Release) Chester Penister (Fireball Tim Lawrence) works in the complaints department of the DMV. When people come in to complain… he can’t handle it and blacks out. We go with him to solve the problem in his mind. (30 min)


A very special VLOG tomorrow as I’ve been sick and haven’t had a chance to post much. I’m premiering on Youtube a Short Film I did many years ago… About 20 at this point.

It’s a crazy wacky film called CHESTER THE IDIOT, long before Napoleon Dynamite. In fact, pretty sure they stole it but que sera, sera.

Chester the Idiot is a wacky comedy about a strange young man who works in the complaints dept of the DMV. Irate people come in and give him a hard time… which blacks him out and we go into his movie-inspired mind adventures.

We had a VERY limited budget, terrible equipment, but a great crew. I recently re-edited it too with more VLOG-style music. Hope you guys enjoy it TOMORROW!

WATCH! Mayan-Inspired SciFi Short Film “THE HEART OF SKY”

Very cool short from Mirari & Co…

In the past two years, we’ve been working on this short film as a chronic background project.

We have come across hundreds of problems and limitations during the production process and used to think we might never be able to publish it. By pushing our creativity and with the curiosity to see how far we can go, we made our way here.

Taking inspiration from Mayan myth, we have initiated this story about how lives might have been created on earth, in a science fiction style.

Most of the references, which helped our design are from a book called “Popol Vuh.” The book is a corpus of historical narrative about post Classic K’iche’ kingdom, which is also considered as Mayan bible.
