99 Cent Tuxedo

(contact Sean Gannet for password)

Do you remember the joy of the 99 cent store?

In this quirky little short, a man’s nostalgia is embodied in his outfit: a paper tuxedo. He’s content living under that spell until a woman tears him out of the past, crumples him up, and tosses him into the present.

Featuring Ryan Good and Kate Holland.

Director Statement

When I signed on to direct 99 Cent Tuxedo I decided that the whole production should have a DIY feel. We would create in-camera effects, hand paint our sets, and go guerrilla with our tactics. The result is an immersion- a dive into the mind of a man who desperately clings to a simpler time.
