Jeffrey Williams returns with A Day in the Life of Your Cats, a terrific comedy about what cats do all day at home. What they think of their lives, their owners, each other, and the dog. And what they do when you’re not looking. A fun romp with witty dialogue, scene ideas, and acting by Zach Palmer and Ryan Tutton as the hipster housecats.
Cameron Fay wrote and directed his latest short, Sitting Babies, which also sets up an awkward situation and mines it for laughs. In this case, it’s a beleaguered babysitter’s evening from hell, taking care of a defiant and manipulative young teen boy played by Justin Bright. Jack Quaid plays the hapless sitter who had no idea what he was in for, and struggles with each new challenge from young Joey. And then mom comes home….
These are just some of the comedies on tap. To mix it up a little, we have the horror film Happy Anniversary, about struggling newlyweds who come clean with each other by deciding to kill those they’ve had affairs with. Thanks to Edward Payson for his latest contribution to the festival.
Checkout these and the rest of our alumni shorts program on Sunday, November 11, at 3:00.
