In the summer of 2013, I cut “The Clean Up” with my good friend Jesse Allen. The film has done quite well on the festival circuit and was selected by Vice to be part of their short film series, “I’m Short, Not Stupid”.
I am pretty proud of this one. I think Jesse did an excellent job creating a succinct, tight short film that manages to make you laugh and make you think. A great short film is just one single idea examined simply with intelligence and style. “The Clean Up” has that. Plus, the edit was painless. It is nice to work with someone who you sync with on such an essential creative level that creating something isn’t like pulling teeth.
Watch the film. I think you’ll enjoy it.
