Why Watch? These days, getting noticed can often be a matter of having outrageous effects, a slick animation or a shocking idea that turns heads. Because that’s become the norm, it’s even more shocking when simple emotion hooks you without letting go.

Jonas (Edmund Lyndeck, who’s probably most famous as the crazy drunk in Big Daddy) is an umbrella salesman trying to make it through a rain-less summer and a loneliness filled with memories. For anyone who’s ever had a sweet old grandfather who stuck to his antique guns even when modern times made him seem out-moded, Kevin Slack‘s short film is a celebration of faith and tenderness that also happens to be gorgeously shot. It’s a short movie that quietly rises above a noisy fray.

What will it cost? Only 10 minutes.
