Bad Day at the Office Short Film

"Some days you wake up, and life just kicks you in the bollocks." Yep. It's Monday, no ones wants to be at work, it's cold out there, the office probably has pranks planned. It's not going to be a fun day. Or is it? The short film Bad Day at the Office from director Nick Scott tries to put a spin on the old fashioned idea of a "bad day at the office". I won't even make the obvious Office Space comparison, because this is much more like Wes Anderson meets Lars von Trier than anything from Mike Judge, but whatever it takes to convince you this is worth 10 mins of your time. There's a polished, professional feel to this and the FX (including all the make-up) look great. It's not the best film I've ever watched, but it's the perfect short to start the week.

Introduction to Bad Day at the Office from Vimeo: "Wallace D. Popple's workday delivers a series of painful mishaps. Yet within this off-kilter tale about happiness lies a twist for the twisted." Bad Day at the Office is written and directed by Nick Scott (for Studio Hansa), produced by Harriet Macdonald, with cinematography by Lorenzo Levrini. Starring Matthew Fraser Holland and Kara Lily Hayworth, with the voice of Paul Freeman as the narrator. The short first premiered at film festivals throughout 2014 after getting funding on Kickstarter and finally ended up hitting the web this year.

I liked it. I expected a bigger pay off at the end but it was very well done. It did remind me of Anderson.
