Emotional Gamer Short 'Player Two' Based on a YouTube Comment
"Once I started meddling around I found a ghost." Who said YouTube comments weren't worth anything? Player Two is a new short film (running under 2 minutes, impressive!) from filmmaker John Wikstrom that's based entirely on a comment from YouTube. The story is about a boy, Zac Pullam (seen on "Finding Carter"), who used to play video games with his dad on one of those old clunky Xbox consoles, and discovers a way to reconnect with him years later. Wikstrom is the talented filmmaker behind two other shorts we've featured - The Hatchling and Chloe - and should be making features in Hollywood by now. Give this a look.
From Vimeo. The short film is based on a YouTube comment by "00WARTHERAPY00", which can be seen here in full: imgur.com/TH7Pr7c. It's about a young gamer who discovers he can still spend time playing a racing game with his late father. Player Two is directed by John Wikstrom (of the shorts The Hatchling and Chloe previously), starring Zac Pullam (seen on "Finding Carter"), featuring cinematography by Idan Menin. It was edited and produced by John Wikstrom - for more info on his work, visit his official website.
