Arthur Industries: “This Is Me”

thisisme.jpg

“This is Me” is a wry, three-minute short from The Ebeling Group’s Arthur Industries that leverages motion graphics (among other slick directorial tricks) to tell its grin-worthy story. It also sports some fantastic color correction, tinting the protagonist’s dead-end world in sickly yellows and greens.

“This Is Me” won the Audience Award at the Eurostar Coming Short Film Festival.

I am speechless… apparently monovich is right, it is quite a fresh bit of viewing… But unlucky unclucky man… (and I say that using same accent as the VO did) Love the Irish tone of the VO…

That was great! The acting was amazing…

Yes, nicely done-and the great British obsession with the lavatory continues, predictably, as each rising producer looks for the common touch to please the masses and add to his or her CV, get recognised and end up in advertising wherein football players make ever more money in walk on roles selling chips and video games.
Actually apart from the technical skills manifest in this short I would never put my name to it.
Over.
