Now this is what I'm talking about! Filmmaker Bertrand Pare sent me this link to his 12-minute short film "Itsy Bitsy Spiders," which is one of the coolest things I've seen all week. It's about a young boy named Edwin who has become strangely obsessed with drawing pictures of spiders all over the walls of the apartment he shares with his mother. Troubled by this obsession, his mother does what she can to make him stop.
The production value of "Itsy Bitsy Spiders" is amazing, with a real cinematic quality to the style, the lighting, and the set design. The boy playing Edwin is completely natural, and I loved the attitude that his mother had, especially at the end of the short. The tone is definitely mysterious and creepy, but also a bit tongue-in-cheek and humorous. Watch it now and enjoy!
