A father tells his son the most epic bedtime story ever.
Super glad that Film School Rejects and Short of the Week featured this short by David Lowery (Ain’t Them Bodies Saints).
Dark and unnerving, you begin to question the truthfulness of the story: is it real? what’s really going on? is it all just a bedtime story? The actors sell it beautifully and the score and cinematography wrap this up into a gorgeous little short film.
Watching an actor change on-screen is interesting. Watching him absolutely dissolve is fascinating.
Anton Saunders plays this role absolutely on point, and the cinematography by Martin Kobylarz is gritty perfect.
