About This Event

ALL AGES // 7:00 PM DOORS // 8:00 PM SHOW NO AUDIO/VIDEO/PROFESSIONAL CAMERAS MASKS STRONGLY ENCOURAGED The KU Film Department and the Free State Festival proudly presents a screening of Chop & Steele Joe Pickett and Nick Prueher are living the dream. Sure, they never got rich or famous doing comedy. But neither of them have day jobs, and they tour full time as The Found Footage Festival, sharing clips from their vast collection of VHS ephemera with appreciative audiences. But the duo is knocked out of its analog groove when an especially humorless media company sues Pickett and Prueher over an innocent - and absolutely hilarious - morning-show prank. Tossed into a nightmare world of corporate lawyers and frivolous lawsuits, Pickett and Prueher do what they do best: Make a big old joke out of it. Directed & Produced by KU Alum, Ben Steinbauer, Filmed & Produced by KU Alum, Priest Fontaine Batten and Produced by KU Alum, Katie Steinbauer.
