Short Film of the Day: The Walker

Why Watch? What happens when a superhero gets old? What happens if the world needs him again?

I know, I know. Superhero movies are so boring that even explorations and deconstructions of superheroes movies are yesterday’s news, but this Austin-shot short film has a charm that outweighs all of staleness that’s come with capes.

First of all, it’s silly and owns it. Secondly, its cinematography is sleek, interesting, and aids the actors at every turn. Thirdly, it’s fun. Sometimes that’s all it takes to overcome a genre that’s been beaten like a dead horse. And, yes, it gets bonus points for being made in 48 hours.

What does it cost? Just 8 minutes of your time.
