Wanted to see what we could make in the time it takes to smoke a cigarette. Editing took five minutes. We thought about putting an American Lung Association Logo on it and calling it a spec spot, but technically fish don’t have lungs.

Super 35mm — 8 min Short Film
A black comedy delving into the volatile emotionality of newlyweds. The film begins with a blissful wedding, but the young couple’s union explodes when a sudden fit of jealousy unhinges Sandra and Lonnie’s world. Generosity leads to spiteful reprisals as a metal-crushing, fire-spewing crescendo shows that mayhem can be an integral element in the high stakes of true love. Finished as a 5.1 surround sound anamorphic theatrical print, Anniversary Present is a frenetically paced, quixotic comedy.
