Short Film Of The Day: Uncle Jack

Why Watch? A little girl’s bedtime story, told while bullets fly.

I featured another Jamin Winans film yesterday, but there’s no reason not to check out more – especially when Winans cuts to the chase in a movie’s first second.

This short features a gambler on the run who gets a phone call from his niece and has to tell her a bedtime story that seems to have some clear parallels to his own chase scene. A little comedy, a little coincidence and another magical urban fairytale from a fresh voice.

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

Check out Uncle Jack for yourself:


Trust us. You have time for more short films.
