Lost Memories

A person named “Elvis” posted a very well done interview and review of the Director of “Lost Memories”, Francois Ferracci.    According to this interview, Lost Memories makes a powerful comment on digital versus analog living as well as the nature of memories—especially when they are all tweeted, blogged or committed to a digital archive somewhere.

 

Touch: Adult Theme

This is not a particularly visual film, but rather uses dialogue and implied visuals to tell a story.

Judging by her style of dress, casual mannerisms and intimate tone of voice, they could be any couple in Dallas having a dinner date on rainy night.  We are drawn into the conversation about what is passionately sexy.  Surprisingly, she was a prostitute and they didn’t know each other.  What might have been the beginning of  a relationship that is turning intimate turns out to be a Q&A about what they “like”.  How many clients actually care enough to ask her those same questions?  The money was the end game, but the director makes sure that we are first taken to a different place in this short film.

When a relationship is forced to change, how does one come to terms with the past and reconcile? Ultimately, relationships like life simply exist, persist, and endure for a limited period of time.  This is a beautiful little film that touches on concepts of mortality. It is very well made, and quite moving, although somewhat sad.

Rent a Person

Men of Dallas, do you have a dead end job or little to live for?  Do you seek support, positive motivation, or that spark to motivate you to do great things for mankind?  Ok, we overdid it here, but “Rent-A-Person” is a romantic musical comedy about a men’s room attendant who revolutionizes rush hour traffic.

This excellent short film tells the story of a bathroom attendant who earns little money catering to men’s restroom needs.  After establishing his plight, this lost soul is approached by a man who asks him to get in his car so that he can take the carpool lane and be on time for his busy life.  The bathroom attendant attends to his needs, but in doing so, his life is altered as he seizes the opportunity to become an entrepreneur.  He begins a business in which people can rent a person to save time by being able to drive in the carpool lane.

Over time, his employees demand more wages and his desire to lead diminishes.  His social life never improved with financial success, and he ultimately return to being a bathroom attendant.  It is at that moment when he meets the attendant in the ladies bathroom.

Men of Dallas, do not have an affair.  Seems like simple, straightforward advice.  But what if you stray… and die?  This short film depicts two women, one a wife, one a lover, and their encounter staged at the coffin of their lover.
