I think the (very, awesomely talented) high school kid who made this amusing short film has seen a couple of Wes Anderson movies in his day. In fact, I can almost picture him speaking exhaustively ad naseum about mise en scène in The Life Aquatic, to the point where his friends are like “SHUT UP, WE GET IT: The “Let me tell you about my boat” scene is the greatest scene in film history. I can’t even hate him for that.
Obvious auteur influences aside, the short film this kid made is pretty entertaining. NYU or USC film school is in your future for sure, kid.
