Congratulations to Jim Archer on his short film Brian & Charles screening as part of the Narrative Shorts Competition at SXSW. The film was screened three times and got a fantastic reception.
“Brian and Charles” tells the story of an unlikely friendship forged in isolation. After a particularly harsh winter Brian goes into a deep depression; completely isolated and with no one to talk to Brian does what any sane person would do when faced with such a melancholic situation, he builds a robot. Charles is that robot. While life is pretty rosy for a while, tensions begin to rise between pair. Partly due to the fact that Charles has the cognitive ability of a 4 year old child and completely due to the fact that he keeps eating Brians cabbages. Things soon come to a head and Brian is forced to make a decision he may soon come to regret.
Since the trip to Texas, it has also been accepted into ASPEN Film Festival. Congrats to Jim and all of the team involved.
