Assist: AKA: Let's Talk Short Films


I normally stick to writing about things that are more mainstream, I guess, but today I came across a link to a short film staring Maxwell Glikc, of The Lizzie Bennet Diaries fame. I suggest you check it out before you continuing on. The film can be found here.

The film follows young Carter Roman (Glick) who is a serious film nerd, from a priviledge family, who dreams of being a director. He's a know it all and entitled, and now he's dad's gotten him a job on the biggest movie of the year, unfortunately it's as a PA.

The thing I found so interesting about the film was that it shows, at least a little bit, that all the work that goes into making all these films/television shows that we enjoy so much. It's easy to forget that there is so much involved in the creation of our favorite entertainment. It's really nice to see a film that reminds us just how important and integral the support staff really is.Sure there are those few lucky people who are "discovered" and become a star, or who are lucky enough to be born into the business, but for most people, succeeding in the entertainment industry isn't an overnight thing, and that there is a lot of hard work and a bunch of shitty jobs.

I adore Maxwell Glick and it was great to see him as a lead, so if you have the time you should definitely check this one out.
