A Conversation with my 12-Year-Old Self: 20th Anniversary Edition

The Best Short Films

Why Watch? A few people probably videotaped themselves when they were younger, giving messages to their future selves. Jeremiah McDonald did, and now he’s turned that video into a brilliant, self-deprecating bit of comedy. It works first and foremost because its edited together with some sort of magic – taking an echo from the past and molding it into a realistic conversation between a child of 1992 and a man of 2012. It works beyond that because McDonald has a bone dry wit that’s unafraid to point out how dorky he was when he was a kid. But weren’t we all? Exactly. And what’s even better, the short is more than just a gimmick, delivering an interesting insight into the dreams we used to have (and questioning why we don’t have them anymore). What will it cost? Only 4 minutes. Skip Work. You’ve Got Time For More Short Films
