Shorts I Liked: There's a Man in the Woods

Logline: A loving Teacher gets fired from his job when his mischievous student makes up a story of a monster in the woods
Concept Statement:  What goes around comes around

Running Time: 3:36

Things I liked:
  • Overall, origin story for a murderer / kidnapper
  • Ending directly connects to the beginning (first and last lines uttered: "There's a Man in the Woods.")
  • Irony of a loving teacher turned into a killer of the children he once tried to protect

Observed Techniques Observed:

  • Montage, Parallel Editing
