A Catalog of Anticipations

A Catalog of Anticipations

This is another edition of Short Starts, where we present a weekly short film(s) from the start of a filmmaker or actor’s career. “The film your watching now was edited on a computer. If you knew that I cut it by hand, that I spliced each cut over and over until I had it just the way I wanted it, that I wound the film on reels and ran it through my fingers and my fingers left their mark on each frame I touched, would you appreciate it more? If there were tiny scratches and specks from where I let it touch the ground and jumps in the sound from where the emulsion was rubbed off, would these flaws endear it to you? Would they matter? Not likely.” David Lowery has acted in, edited, directed, DPed, produced, written and been thanked in dozens of short films. After more than a decade of prolific output, he’s springboarded out of Sundance this year as the editor of Upstream Color, the writer of Pit Stop and the writer/director of Ain’t Them Bodies Saints. Fans of those films won’t be surprised to find that these shorts feature (for the most part) the same calm, poetically contemplative affectations.
