A Short Film a Day
Tim and Susan Have Matching Handguns
by Joe Callander
Short Films are extremely important to us, which is why one of our top priorities this year is covering a short film every day. While we’re starting the first thirty days on the site with fairly well known short films, we would like to get as many submissions as possible quickly. If you or someone you know has made a short film, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The plan for this month has been to go backwards in time, covering one short film per year. I took a break from this on Tuesday to talk about Rory Uphold‘s new short series Only In HelLA, and I’m taking a break today to bring you another brand new short film.
This evening I streamed the newest Steve James documentary, Life Itself, in my own home at the same time the film was premiering at Sundance. While the movie was amazing, the streaming experience did leave a little to be desired. Still, I feel extremely lucky that today’s climate allows people to be more involved with films at an early stage.
Another way you can be involved is by watching a collection of 15 short films that are screening this week in Park City. Each viewing of the shorts is a vote, and the film with the most votes at the end of the festival will win an Audience Award.
I’ve only had a chance to watch one of the films so far, and I present it to you here. The film caught my eye because it was purchased by Oscilloscope Laboratories, and I decided to bring it to you, not only because I thought it was interesting, but because it’s less than 2 minutes long, and I know there is cable television to watch on Sunday nights.
