What is The Old Negro Space Program?
It’s a short film I made in 2003. I had the title first. It made me laugh. Then I made the movie, slowly. I figured if it sucked I wouldn’t show it to anyone. It did not suck, so here it is.
Also it was one of the first shorts to “go viral,” and I’m very proud of it. The Old Negro Space Program has been good to me. I hope you enjoy it.
Community Panel ROCKS Comic-Con
It’s so cool to work on a show that gets this kind of love from fans.
My new gig is writing for Community on NBC. If you haven’t seen this freaking awesome show, check out the Paintball episode. One of the best half hours of tv I’ve seen in a long long time.
Want to help me out?
Sure I’m a big-time tv writer now. But not that big-time yet. Tell you what. If you really loved the movie, why not get yourself a sweet remembrance of our time together:
Beautiful, right? Okay, so you love the movie and you want to help me pay for the cost of hosting this site, but you don’t want a t-shirt or mousepad. How about a donation through Paypal?
Or how about this? You want to donate, but you don’t want me to have any piece of it? Please give to the Negro League Players Association, or the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum. You’ll feel good. I’ll feel less guilty for satirizing this treasured part of American history. And you’ll be helping to keep this treasure alive.
