PTFF: Making the Man

In this cute short film, filmmaker John Susman follows a timid, nervous young man through his interview with a video dating service. He stammers and stutters through the interview for most of the ten minute film with humorous results. Then the movie closes with a quite predictable, but still funny ending. The performances are great. The lighting and cinematography are beautiful - though the side shots of the interviewer an interviewee are shot with distractingly shallow depth of field. It’s cute, it’s funny, and it made for a good appetizer before the main feature, but it failed to achieve greatness. 3 stars.
