What it is: Very short trick film

A photographer becomes frustrated when the beautiful woman he is trying to photograph keeps turning into a rather dumpy man.

Here’s another “one that got away” that finally made itself available to me. This one is less than half a minute long. and usually I don’t expect much from something that short. However, in its own modest way, it’s well acted (I like the photographer’s reactions to the situation) and even has something of what might be called a “plot”. It’s rather amusing as well, at least partially because the “dumpy man” is particularly unappetizing. For its brevity, this one works extremely well.
