Watch: Climent/Hedetoft's Time Travel Comedy Short 'Double Trouble'
We're excited to premiere a brand new sci-fi short film originating from Sweden called Double Trouble, a time travel comedy from directing duo (and friends of the site) Andreas Climent (@andreascliment) & André Hedetoft (@ahedetoft). This charming, goofy short film is about a shy young man who misses the opportunity to talk to the girl of his dreams. But when he finds a mysterious pocket watch that can turn back time, well, that's when things get interesting. It's an impressive film that doesn't rely on any dialogue, only actions and reactions, and it's cool to see just how far they go playing with the time travel concept/paradox. These two made that Logan short we ran previously, and are already working on a feature, they definitely have a bright filmmaking future ahead of them. Take a break from Star Wars and watch this amusing short.
Climent/Hedetoft's latest short is being sent out to festivals all over the world, and has already been selected as part of the Pixel, Grossman and Cincinnati Film Festivals. So this is an online early glimpse for free here.
Here's the short Double Trouble, from writers & directors Andreas Climent & André Hedetoft, on Vimeo:

Synopsis from Vimeo: It is the story about a shy young man who misses the opportunity to talk to the girl of his dreams. When he finds a mysterious pocket watch that can turn back time, he gets a second chance… The filmmakers behind the short: "We're big fans of Spielberg and Zemeckis and wanted to try to bring back the warm feeling of the adventure movies of the 80's and try to combine that with visual comedy that Pixar is so good at." - Andreas Climent. "The core of the story is really about your inner insecurities and the challenges we all face when trying to achieve our dreams. We tried to reflect those emotions in the film." - André Hedetoft.

Double Trouble was written & directed by Andreas Climent & André Hedetoft, produced by Lisette Nilsson. The short stars Marcus Thernström Florin, Emelia Hansson and Mattias Thernström Florin. After making the Wolverine short Logan and a few other short films, the filmmakers were out of money. They tried financing Double Trouble through the Swedish Film Institute but were turned down. So instead they turned to Kickstarter and with the help of backers from all over the world the Kickstarter campaign became a success and the film got a budget of just over $4000. After the Kickstarter campaign, the film also got the support from Way Creative Films, Solid Entertainment and BoostHBG, and shot this using the same cameras as Fincher's The Girl With a Dragon Tattoo.
