After I shared The Oceanmaker last week, I got a bit of a surprise when Lucas Martell, who is the producer, director, and writer behind that short film shared the post on Twitter, then gave me a follow.
That may or may not have anything to do with me sharing another of his short films this week. It certainly wasn’t because of money changing hands in a secret location that, even now, cannot be disclosed for reasons of intergalactic security, but was totally an abandoned warehouse in the scenic Warehouse District of Vancouver.
I may have digressed there.
Actually, what happened was that I thought it was really cool of him, so I decided to go ahead and share his other big success of a short film. Most people have possibly seen it, since it’s six years old, but it was new to me, so for those of you who haven’t seen it, here it is.
Now, The Oceanmaker was a powerful story of courage and sacrifice set against the backdrop of catastrophe. The tale of an unsung hero who was willing to give everything to make the world a better place for everyone, even the people who took her life. It was deep, profound, and moving
Pigeon: Impossible is not that. Though, I admit, it does touch on my personal concerns of what will happen if pigeons are allowed to continue developing advanced military hardware.
What? I have very specific fears of the future, okay?
Pigeon: Impossible is a comedy short, done with the kind of skill you would expect of Pixar, and revolves around a young CIA agent as he struggles with a particular problem that could end the world. It’s funny, snappy, smart, and has the best phallic imagery ever.
See for yourself.
If the last two weeks haven’t convinced you of the genius that is Lucas Martell, I dunno what you need. Maybe more realistic standards would help.
Tell him Cain sent you. He won’t have a clue what you mean, or at least, if you don’t have clearance, he’ll pretend not to.
