Director Dan Trachtenberg, who you might know from his online television show, Totally Rad Show, has a new short film out with BlackBoxTV called More Than You Can Chew, which you can watch right here below.
Apparently, BlackBoxTV is a Twilight Zone-like anthology series that’s put out on YouTube each week, which sounds pretty cool. More Than You Can Chew, which Dan co-wrote with Mark Walker, runs just under 5 minutes. The short centers on a rookie paramedic and her partner who respond to a 911 house call of a most unusual nature. At first it seems like a less-frantic episode of something like CSI, but then the eerie begins and that’s where you get your Twilight Zone feel.
I heard about this short from /Film and really liked what I saw and wanted to post about it here not only because I’m SO proud of my pal Dan and his accomplishments, but because I really dig it and would love to see more of this story told. Also, I figured since /Film’s such a tiny little blog — what do they get, like about a hundred hits a day? — no one’s going to see Dan’s film over there, I should probably post about it here and give it the massive attention it really truly deserves! [Just kidding, Peter!!!]
But, yeah, trust me, check out More Than You Can Chew here below, along with a video with director commentary, as well as a behind-the-scenes video. If you like the film, be sure to go to the YouTube page and leave some love in the Comments section.
