I wrote a short film, “Super Special.” The video above is just one scene from that short. It’s a story about a group of friends who teach Alan, a person with Asperger’s Syndrome, about friendship, love and revenge. Apparently, Alan is a savant who has the ability to emulate things he sees on T.V. Imagine the possibilities after watching Bruce Lee’s Enter the Dragon, or a Mike Tyson fight, circa 1987. Supposedly, Alan’s savant is only activated when he hears a certain song, Jermain Stewart’s “We Don’t Have to Take Our Clothes Off.”
It was the greatest feeling being able to work with all of our friends. Tomek is a wonderful performer/musician. He is just an amazing person to be around and to work on a project with. I wrote everyone’s lines, except Tomek’s improved lines where 100 times better.
David really was the first friend I made in LA. And he brings the party! Also, he is an amazing animator and artist. Honestly, his demo real is tremendous. Please check out his website. Also, Joshua really is a firestorm on the piano and there is a part in the short that specifically showcases his talent, unfortunately, we haven’t filmed it yet.
