I just watched AM1200, a 40-minute short film directed, produced, and written by David Prior. Aside from this, he mostly does featurettes and short documentaries for other movies. But he has a movie coming out at some point soon called The Empty Man.
Anyway, WOW. This is a phenomenal short film, and it makes me SUPER excited to see what Prior will do next. The movie stars Eric Lange (character actor, been in SEVERAL different shows), John Billingsley (Star Trek: Enterprise), and Ray Wise (Twin Peaks, RoboCop) and I’m not going to tell you a thing about it. It’s too perfect to be spoiled.
Please, set aside 40 minutes and watch this. Turn off all the lights. Use headphones. Watch it alone. Pee beforehand so you don’t need to pause it and kill the tension.
It’s available on Vimeo via the production company.
WATCH IT. AM1200. I LOVE IT.
