365 Movies Day #145 "Plot Device"
My wife actually pointed me in the direction of this film and I think anyone working in the industry would agree that this is a pretty cool little flick. Really these are the kinds of shorts that Robert Rodriguez wishes he was making back in the day.
Directed by Seth Worley and starring his brother Ben, "Plot Device" tells the story of a young filmmaker looking for the secret to making it big in the form of books on Amazon.com. Looking at the "DV Rebel's Guide" by Stu Maschwitz (a book I bought, read, watched the DVD for and gave my copy of to buddy Samuel Haun) he notices something called a "Plot Device". Basically it's a machine that launches him through several different film genres.
It's clever, it's cute, it's well executed on a budget and it's definitely fun to watch for filmmakers and everyone else for that matter. Check it out! Some of the most fun you can have in 9 minutes on the internet...and for free even.
