Lightningface Trailer

"Just one week ago, everything was so different." This looks a bit crazy. I'm not usually fond of posting trailers for short films, but I couldn't help it with this one - it has Poe Dameron in it! An official trailer has debuted for a short film called Lightningface, starring actor Oscar Isaac as Basil Stitt. The description says that "in the aftermath of an inexplicable incident", he locks himself in his apartment goes through one helluva transformation. This trailer has definitely piqued my interest, I'm just curious when we'll be able to actually see the full short film and how long it will be. Hoping this film has quite a bit to say. Watch below.

Here's the official trailer for Brian Petsos' Lightningface, direct from Vimeo (found via The Playlist):

Lightningface Poster

Official synopsis: An origin story, of sorts--LIGHTNINGFACE stars Oscar Isaac as Basil Stitt, who in the aftermath of an inexplicable incident, decides to sequester himself inside his apartment, setting the stage for a profound transformation. Lightningface is a short film written and directed by Brian Petsos, an American filmmaker who studied at Second City in Chicago and started out as an actor before getting into filmmaking. We're not sure when the short will be available or when it will show up online, but he's likely submitting it to festivals first. For more info, visit the official Lightningface site here.

No thanks. I like Isaac, but this looks like it will be more annoying than anything else.
