*Watch It Right Now* — OH MY GOD

If you’ve never seen John Bryant’s classic short Oh My God, boy, are you in for a treat. Watch it right now. This is not a suggestion. This is an order: stop what you’re doing for the next 10 minutes and watch this movie, damn it!

Since the premiere of Oh My God back in 2004, Bryant has continued to produce hilariously disturbing films (Momma’s Boy, Loveolution, The Overbrook Brothers). But at the very moment—as in, the clock… is… quickly… ticking…—he’s trying to raise a meager 8k to produce his newest short, John 3:16, which sounds like another awesomely warped classic in the making.

Though we have never previously plugged Kickstarter campaigns here at HTN because frankly our skin is too sensitive (“if you did it for that one, then why wouldn’t you do it for mine? come on, you dumb jerks!”). Yet after having recently launched this *Watch It Right Now* series, and having just revisited the glorious Oh My God, well, here we are.

Contribute right now to Bryant’s Kickstarter campaign, which ends at 11:37pm (EST) on Thursday, August 22nd (2013), so that he can bring his vision to light [UPDATE: In the time that I started prepping this post, Bryant appears to have reached his goal!]

I really, really, really wanna see this movie.

Michael Tully is an award-winning writer/director whose films have garnered widespread critical acclaim, his projects having premiered at some of the most renowned film festivals across the globe. He is also the former (and founding) editor of this site. In 2006, Michael's first feature, COCAINE ANGEL, chronicling a tragic week in the life of a young drug addict, world premiered at the International Film Festival Rotterdam. The film immediately solidified the director as one of Filmmaker Magazine’s "25 New Faces of Independent Film,” a reputation that was reinforced a year later when his follow-up feature, SILVER JEW, a documentary capturing the late David Berman's rare musical performances in Tel Aviv, world-premiered at SXSW and landed distribution with cult indie-music label Drag City. In 2011, Michael wrote, directed, and starred in his third feature, SEPTIEN, which debuted at the 27th annual Sundance Film Festival before being acquired by IFC Films' Sundance Selects banner. A few years later, in 2014, Michael returned to Sundance with the world premiere of his fourth feature, PING PONG SUMMER, an ‘80s set coming-of-age tale that was quickly picked up for theatrical distribution by Gravitas Ventures. In 2018, Michael wrote and directed the dread-inducing genre film DON'T LEAVE HOME, which has been described as "Get Out with Catholic guilt in the Irish countryside" (IndieWire). The film premiered at SXSW and was subsequently acquired by Cranked Up Films and Shudder.
