The nominees for this year’s TheWrap’s ShortList Film Festival are astounding and inventive, and now is the time to check them out, as voting ends on August 27. And we urge you to check out all of the films, including the incredibly inventive and affecting short, “Noah.”
No, it’s not about getting animals into a boat. This Noah is a teenager who’s about to go off to college, and the movie takes place entirely on his laptop and smartphone.
Warning: Contains Adult Content
The experimental movie is done almost completely in a single shot, as Noah navigates through the online world as his real world relationships come apart.
We only ever see our protagonist on Skype, but we still get to know him through his online conversations, his website choices and his increasingly obsessive behavior.
It’s funny, dramatic, and gets pretty NSFW (especially the chatroulette section: we cannot stress that enough). It’s well worth your time.
Voting for the Shortlist will remain open until August 27, so vote now.
