For the duration of this creation, a pair of mobsters engage in a wordplay-filled conversation. The combination of Noir-style confrontation and a rhyme infatuation makes the film an inspiration. The filmmakers hope it garners your appreciation and earns a hearty recommendation.

Short Film: BANANAS, 5min., USA, Comedy

SYNOPSIS

“A prank meant to go viral goes horribly wrong and it’s all recorded in the reaction video.”

CREDITS 

Written, directed, edited by, and starring Zack Arch

Filmed by and starring Charlie Fay

Friends played by Kathy Dorn and Dasha Fayvinova

STATEMENT

Bananas is a short made by the comedy troupe, Flambé. For 9 months, they churned out a sketch a week. This was #27. It’s filmed from the perspective of Charlie capturing Zack’s reaction to a prank he played on him, until everything completely backfires and Zack is left robbed in an apartment littered with bananas. Inspired by online prank videos, Zack decided to write this piece and film it vertically, integrating the natural shitty texture of iPhone videos in order to further blur the line between fiction and reality. Playing it straight is key to the comedy of this sketch. How closely can you toe the line between comedy and drama? The initial concept was simple; have a nervous breakdown surrounded by hundreds of bananas, arguably the most ridiculous fruit. The viewer can form their own opinion from that point. Is it funny? Is it a nightmare? Did Zack simply waste $83 on 5 crates of bananas? Where are the bananas now? What is Zack’s venmo handle so I can toss him some dough for all those bananas? What is Zack’s venmo handle so I can gift him $5000 per month, fulfilling my lifelong dream of being a Dickens-esque benefactor? All those questions may or may never be answered. Life is short

BEHIND CLOSED DOORS, 5min., USA, Comedy

18cf257a4c poster

A slice of life, romantic comedy about a modern couple’s Saturday morning habits. Lana and Carter equally love being with each other as much as their alone time. Companionship is being comfortable being your whole selves, awkward, unkempt, imperfect and occasionally appalling; but sometimes there are just some things best left, alone.
