George Gross, Senior Break, Nanny Cam

My friend George Gross is a brilliant filmmaker, but as he continues to rise to new levels of fame, he’ll have to compete with the world’s other famous George Gross, the one who made trashy (yet awesome) crime/sex posters like the one above.  It’s actually not bad company, as I think the only other famous Willie Simpson is an Australian beer critic or something.  I’d love to interview him actually.  Anyway, George’s latest masterpiece is a short film entitled, “Senior Break.”   It’s actually a perfect film to put up as the leaves change, and people start thinking about autumn and Halloween.  It’s an incredibly sharp portrait of some of crafty seniors plotting a daring escape from the clutches of some well meaning nursing home attendants.  The project was shot for the Producer Guild of America’s “Produce This! Competition,” in which participants had only 51 hours to conceive, shoot, and edit a film with very narrow parameters.  George had recently won a similar contest, the New York wing of the “48 Hour Film Project” contest, and because this website is so cool, I’m gonna post that award winning video to go along with his latest.  “Nanny Cam” is another short film about a twisted psychopathic babysitter, that is actually a really cute baby film in disguise.  If that doesn’t make sense, pressing play will answer all your questions, and trust me, both films are masterpieces of suspense and film making ingenuity.  Remember, he made these things from start to finish in less than two days, concept, execution, everything.  It’s an unbelievable accomplishment, so check them out.
