Foureyes Short Film

"They are going to bring everything into focus." The perfect short to start your week, take a look at Foureyes, written and directed by Conor Byrne. This hilarious and charming independent comedy short stars young actor Jake Ryan, seen in Inside Llewyn Davis and Moonrise Kingdom, as Bobby Bowersox - a 10-year-old boy who learns it's time for him to get glasses. The story turns into a zany, sexual coming-of-age from there and it's quite fun, with a cast that gives excellent performances in just 12 minutes. This might not be totally safe for work, but oh well, it's harmless fun and worth watching. This is how to make a great short.

Synopsis from Vimeo: A 10-year-old boy is thrust into the tumultuous world of puberty when he gets a new pair of eyeglasses. Foureyes is written & directed by Conor Byrne, produced by Tyler Byrne & Richard Peete, executive produced by David Laub & Kevin Byrne. The cast includes Jake Ryan, Alfred Gingold as The Eye Doctor, RJ Kelly as Mr. Boyd Bowersox, Lori Funk as Mrs. Paulette Bowersox and Olivia Nikkanen as Tiffani Bowersox. With original music by Ted Feldman of the band Bear Hands. Byrne's Foureyes was just featured as a Short of the Week - for more info on the film head to Vimeo or Brudder Films. What did you think?
