Short Film Of The Day: Mr. Graham

Why Watch? Keep an ear out for some inspired sound design in this short drama about a young man facing the darkness inside of him.

Yes, that’s a tried and true story we’ve heard millions of times before, but writer/director Julius Amedume does something bold and uncomplicated with an ancient concept. It comes close to noir with its narration, a steamy voice over about a father that feels more like poetry than prose, and the long shots of London give it a vice grip on visuals.

What does it cost? Just 13 minutes of your time.

Check out Mr. Graham for yourself:
