Caine's Arcade: a cardboard arcade made by a 9-year-old boy

"9–year–old Caine Monroy spent his summer vacation building an elaborate cardboard arcade inside his dad's used auto parts store. The entire summer went by, and Caine had yet to have a single customer. Then, on the last day of summer, a filmmaker named Nirvan stopped to buy a door handle for his car. Caine asked Nirvan to play, and Nirvan bought a $2 FunPass, becoming Caine's first customer. Inspired by Caine's creativity, Nirvan came back to make a short film about Caine's Arcade and organized a flashmob to surprise Caine with lots of customers."

David Lynch's Interview Project Probes American Dreams

"In Interview Project's mini–documentaries, filmmakers Austin Lynch and Jason S. sidle up to strangers and ask them piercing questions like 'What were your dreams as a child?' and 'When did you first experience death?'

For the 121–part online series, which launches Monday, the pair logged 20,000 miles criss–crossing the United States over a 70–day stretch, searching for random people to question about American life.

In a filmed introduction to Interview Project, producer David Lynch (Austin's father) says: 'There was no plan, really. The (filmmaking) team found people as they were driving along the roads, going into bars, different locations…. There they were. The people told their stories.'

A new three–to–five minute Interview episode will debut every three days for a year.
