Short Film: Pocket Elephant
Here's the trailer for Pocket Elephant - a short (student) film that I wrote and directed for my undergraduate senior thesis. We were lucky enough to strike a deal with Kodak and allowed us to shoot on Super 35mm with our laughably minniscule budget, and thanks so a very scrappy and dedicated cast and crew, we brought this simple little story to life-ish (I hope).
The full short film is at beneath the credits...
