Short Film 'Travesty City'

Postby ryanfedyk » Thu May 12, 2011 10:45 am

I just released my latest short film online



Travesty City describes the disconnect between personal life and work life. How does identity transition between the two and how do we value each independently.

A waiter fills his role with style and precision. As he leaves the restaurant and enters the streets of Travesty City, this sense of purpose and stability begins to unravel. How will he translate his sense of belonging at work into the more unstructured reality of his personal life? Will he know alternatives when he sees them?

That's an interesting film. I watched it first, then read the description. Nice combination of reality and surreality. Like the technique and look as well. Enjoyed it very much, thanks for posting the video and congrats to all involved.
