Loudini Short Film

"Still wearing the cape?" Today's must see short film discovery is titled Loudini, a charming and amusing story about a struggling magician who goes by the nickname "Loudini". Made by the same guys who made the short film Foureyes that we featured a few years ago, Loudini is described (by the filmmakers) as their "mash up of Punch Drunk Love, Inside Llewyn Davis and King of Comedy". That's an eclectic yet appealing pitch that should grab a few of you. The short also has a performance by the musician Car Seat Headrest. This is a great example of a simple idea made grand and engaging by smart filmmaking choices. Have fun.

Found on YouTube. Description: "an original short film -- commissioned by Ray Ban -- about a struggling magician, starring Henry Zebrowski (Wolf of Wall Street) and with a musical performance by Car Seat Headrest." Loudini is written and directed by Conor Byrne, produced by Tyler Byrne, of the short film Foureyes (which we featured in 2014). Henry Zebrowski stars, with Allyn Rachel, Robert Lee and Jakob Verweij. This short film was produced by Ray Ban Films - for more info visit their website. As mentioned, it features the song "Does It Feel Good (To Say Goodbye?)" by Car Seat Headrest. For more shorts, click here.
