Things Are Usually Not How They Appear To Be

Thank you Ilene, for sharing this wonderful short film with me so I can post it for others to enjoy. Winner of the Fourth annual Short Film Online Competition - Cannes 2008. An online film competition! This is amazing to me, and so inspiring. We're able to create, share and touch others much more readily than we ever have before. 

The Story of a Sign was made by a 24 year-old young man from Mexico, Alonso Alvarez Barreda. The actual link to view it larger is here.


Another fabulous short film which won an Academy Award in 1991 for Best Short Film, Live Action is called The Lunch Date. You can see the first two minutes here, to get the feel of it. Unfortunately nowhere on the planet can we find this 10 minute jewel to view in its entirety (I originally saw it on the Academy Awards and was blown away by it). So instead here is a short synopsis of Adam Davidson's singular student debut. 

Things usually are not how they appear to be. . . And I just love that.
