Sure Thing

Sure Thing is one of the most unique shorts you’ll find. For starers it’s an adaptation of a short play. This means the great writing comes as an automatic, but by no means did the director ┬ájust sit back and rest on that. Everything about the cinematography of Sure Thing is excellent. The handling of the cuts, the choice of making it black and white, the timing of the closeups, the splitscreen, the lighting, even the location of the characters in the room that they’re in. To put it into perspective, I’ve seen other adaptations of this short play and none of them even come close in quality to this one. In fact it’s hard to imagine that it can be done any better.
