A GOOD FISH (short film)~Left with nothing by their recently deceased father, two aimless brothers head home to face his funeral.~~The filmmakers behind A GOOD FISH are currently fundraising for their new film BREAK, a story about youth and race in the suburbs. Check out their Kickstarter campaign.~~From Film Shortage:~It all continues from Nick Payne Santos (previously featured) short ‘Ice Cream‘, well sort of. The films are actually very different from each other, but ‘A Good Fish’ does feature the two brothers from ‘Ice Cream’, and while the stories might not coincide, the first film does let you get slightly familiar with the aimless brothers. This film borrows some of the dark humors from the others, but touches a much more sensitive issues and gets a much deeper storyline initiated as the two brothers head to face their dad at his funeral.~~As I get older, so does my father. As he gets older, I can’t help thinking about what will happen when he dies and how I will feel about it. This leads me to think about our relationship, now and in the past. Was it good or bad? Happy or sad? I don’t want to think about these things, but I can’t help it. With death, we often force this type of categorization. Either dismissing the person because the relationship was bad, or finding comfort in the fact that the relationship was good.~~Nick Payne always adds a personal touch to his films, and just like his other films ‘Kiddo, Mutt and Worlds We Created‘, the story spans much brother than what is told.~~My short film, A GOOD FISH, illustrates that the way we react to our relationships with family is up to us, and us alone. And it’s important to make the most out of the relationships that we still have.~~Besides the fantastic moral, A Good Fish is a solid cinematic film within its own oddness, with a bizarrely charming performance by both actors. We are all looking forward to Nick’s next short ‘Break‘.~~Writer & Director: NICHOLAS PAYNE SANTOS~Producers: ADAM R. BROWN & MATTHEW JOHN LAWRENCE~Director of Photography: KYLE I.

INSPIRED & THE SLEEP | Sleeps Well on Knives (music video)~From Noisey: Do you like flannel? And snowy forest landscapes? Do you like menacing men with chainsaws with an Alex DeLarge glint in his eye? Do you like indie-pop that's nimble and melodically sweet? With a trace of Alt-J, minus the bleating sheep vibes. San Diego duo Inspired & the Sleepprovide all these elements in the video for "Sleep Well on Knives." According to the band, the second single off their forthcoming Eyelid Kid EP (out this October), "aims to encompass the feeling of pure crippling weakening anxiety based around a fear of time."~~Ergh. We feel that. The paralysis of time marching on. Relentlessly. Where is the pause button and can someone press it? ~Meanwhile the slo-mo video, directed by Nicholas Payne Santos, was inspired by "70s slow burn horror films." Santos continues: "This music video depicts a young man’s anxiety and deepest fears. My vision was to throw the audience into the climax of a lost film, where a man’s future-self travels back in time to set things right."~There you have it. ~~Band: inspiredandthesleep.com~~Director/Editor: Nicholas Payne Santos~Director of Photography: Kyle I.
