Everybody Wants to be Unique

All it takes is something small to ruin your commute – and in the case of one guy it’s a pair of red glasses. Until that point red was his color on the platform he had been using for years. All the other daily passengers knew it was his color, respected his choice and avoided it themselves out of that strange courtesy you get between familiar strangers. Not today though, oh no. And once this sort of things start, there can be something of a snowball effect.

This charming short by Killscreen Films (aka filmmaker Andrew Dunstan) is a lot of fun. You may have seen it at a picture house – it was screened across the USA by Cinebarre from April 3 - May 17, 2012. Everybody Want to be Unique proves - again - that the age of the silent comedy is not yet over.
