Watch: Spencer Susser's Short 'Eugene' About a Wish-Granting Laptop
What would you wish for if you suddenly held in your hands a laptop that granted wishes? How far would you take it, and what would happen next? For those looking for a bit of Sunday fun to cheer them up, look no further than Eugene, a sponsored short film directed by Spencer Susser, the Aussie filmmaker who brought us that short I Love Sarah Jane years ago as well as the feature Hesher. Created for (and chosen as one of the winners of) a filmmaking competition held by Intel and W Hotels, Eugene is a humorous story of what happens when you give a lonely, bearded man too much power. It's fun and will leave you with a smile.
From the description on Short of the Week: "A traveler in Washington DC gets a mysterious gift: a laptop that grants all his wishes. How will he wield his unexpected powers?" This short is directed by Spencer Susser (of I Love Sarah Jane, Hesher) from a screenplay by Adam Blampied of London, starring actors Michael Govier and Karolina Wydra. The "Four Stories" competition, launched globally in August, invited aspiring filmmakers to submit scripts with two criteria: films must be set at a W Hotel and feature the Intel-Inspired Ultrabook as a central plot component. Eugene was one of the four films chosen for the top prize.

I love MONKEY'S PAW type stories. They always have the best endings.
