Short Film of the Day: Buongiorno (Good Morning)

Why Watch? Because sometimes all you need to make a movie is a clever effect.

This Italian short film uses a common visual effect that can be found on pretty much every movie editor out there. It’s an example of art where something simple can become the base for a gag that’s both startling and silly.

A man wakes up, goes into his bathroom to brush his teeth, only to realize that he might still be in the middle of a nightmare.

Of course, it helps when the actor you get is the Italian Max Headroom (you’ll see), and he’s spine-crawling to watch on his own.

What does it cost? Just 5 minutes of your time.

Check out Buongiorno for yourself:
