Some of you may remember the work of Breakfast Films, a production company founded by friends and acquaintances from a nearby high school of mine. Chicken Bread, Ford For President, The Milkman Cometh…ring any bells? (If not, get me to show you the tape the next time I’m over.) Well, some of those guys started another production company with their NYU friends, Waverly Films. Click on “our work” to unleash the magic. They’ve gotten some honest-to-goodness work already–they’ve made some clever commercials, and music videos for The Thrills and Fatboy Slim–but as with Breakfast Films, it’s the short film where they excel. Check, I mean just check this out: The Werewolf Solution.
(The other shorts are definitely worth watching–“Hi, Frank” can definitely be described as “taut”–but only once you’ve watched WS two or three times.)
