Our Short Film: “9” (2009)

This was made for the 2009 48 Hr film contest. It was written by myself, using the poerty of John M. Bennett. I co-directed with Robin Panet and co-acted with frequent collaborator James Mannan.

After the premiere, one of the judges took me aside and said: “I dig your film and really wanted you guys to win, but you just broke too many¬†rules.”

We did indeed.

I was cornulating lunge at clarifi-” scarification
so the word-index complete’d be, total exposi-
positioned far beyond the longest headache where the
eye should burst ‘ n breathe, all said all time, lunch
on the table clatters…(so the whilred’s less
leaky, more vortextual, conditioned for starvation,
for all the connections bleed from’s list like’s
arm’s ‘n hairs yanked out ” at once I said ” and the
pages frayed…The chairs all filled and the
shadows prayed!
DIRTY DISHES
