Good message, great pops
Okay, I said that I would try to comment more on short films, so here's another one that I thought stood out. And like another film I commented on, it was the writing that made this one work.

Most of this film is us looking at a television screen as a young man watches a tape of his father sending him a message from prison. I won't say too much about what's going on with the young man at the time, but we see right away that the message came a little too late.

The monologue by Gregory Alan Williams (Pops) was well written, and his performance delivered it in a real and effective way. Some of the other parts of the film were a little contrived and not as well thought out than the message, but I think it was all really just to show us the importance of being timely with such a message and to give us some visual drama to surround the monologue. And the monologue is so well done, that the film is worth seeing for that.
