Short Film of the Day: Mockingbird

Why Watch? Because sometimes it only takes a minute to be scared to death.

A father sits at his computer listening to the soothing sounds of his young child on a baby monitor. In the tightest storytelling possible, it goes from sweet to shattering in a short that has to be seen instead of read about.

What Will It Cost? Less than 2 minutes of your time.

Does it get better any better than that?
