The Boy in the Air 2:00 digital video 2005
An enigmatic advertisement inspires a letter. The corporation writes back.
I really did see this ad in my local paper, I really did write to the company, and they really did write me back. The company letter in the film is partially excerpted from the actual company letter, and partly fabricated by me. This movie was SIMPLE and CHEAP--I used a scanner, an audio recorder, Photoshop (to remove the name of the company; otherwise, the ad is real), and Final Cut Pro. I am a big fan of the simple and cheap approach to film production. It's very satisfying to succeed in making something good out of almost nothing.
