Where You Are

"Guys, it's just my mom!" Today's impressive short film worth watching is called Where You Are, a rather peculiar yet fascinating story about a hide-and-seek game gone awry. The story starts when a mother begins playing a harmless game of hide-and-seek with her son James, but suddenly ends traveling through time trying to find him. Sounds odd, but it's good. I love the way this plays out, just flowing from one moment to the next without much time to figure out what's going on (much like life, right?) yet it's obviously intricately planned out. This is the kind of short film that will make you realize there's still great ideas out there. Enjoy.

Description for Where You Are from Vimeo: "When Jen's son disappears in a game of hide-and-go seek, she unwittingly embarks on a journey through time in order to find him." Where You Are is both written and directed by filmmaker Graham Parkes (find him on Vimeo), produced by Oliver Lewin & Brendan Garrett, with cinematography by Christopher Ripley. Starring Sarah Burns, Eric Edelstein and Hudson West. This short film originally premiered at SXSW this year, and also played at the Nashville Film Festival and Capalbio Film Festival, where it won the Grand Prix for Best Short.

That was actually very beautiful. Especially that 14 foot of Dagwood sandwich on the kitchen table, with the goofy husband saying "I can't, Jen, I have to finish all this today."
