Experiencing Interruptions?

An Unlucky Break

In this classic-style silent comedy we tag along with two bank-robbers as they look for a hiding place and unknowingly enter the house of a witch. In there they discuss the supernatural things occuring and end up being spooked into turning themselves in to the police. But as they wait in prison, one of them vanishes, summoned by the witch for explanations on the break in.

Director Statement

This movie is goofy, silly and I love it. We made it for class and it was the first one we actually made in the course. The assignment was to make a movie from the silent era and I think we nailed it. The soundtrack is a special treat made by the lovely Talia, possibly the only part of the short to be taken seriously... I hope you like it as much as I do
