Bob's Office

A short which includes my friend Matt Pollock.

    This was part of the New York 48 Hour film contest. On a Friday night at 7PM, we were given the genre "Buddy Film". All entries had to have 3 things in common: A character named Bethany (or Benjamin) Grimes who is a professional organizer, use a set of keys as a prop, and have the line "You are not gonna believe what I just heard."
    We also decided to make ours a musical.
    This film was conceived, written, composed, recorded, shot and edited in 48 Hours.
