I have to admit that I've really never thought about making a nonnarrative short film, although I suppose one could argue that Youth is a narrative film. Nonetheless this is an awesome film and I wish I had been this talented when I was 16.
YOUTH from Tommy Petroni on Vimeo.
I absolutely love what Molly O'Neill said about this film over at 10 Block Walk: "Or, as you might also care to see it, it's essentially the heart of many a contemporary YA novel, in under five minutes."
I have to agree with Molly. And I loved the skateboarding bits, but that might because one of my MCs is a skater.
I love this film.
Thanks, Tommy for sharing this with us. I know we'll be seeing more of your work in the future.
