Modern Living & You!

A short film that will tie into a feature. "Modern Living & You!" is a satirical look at the world of 1950s/1960s "red scare" and fear mongering, as well as the casual bigotry of the times. The short film takes influence from those Disney featurettes from the 1940s-1960s starring Goofy or Donald at the mercy of a displeased, god-like narrator. While the short itself is also philosophically and psychologically driven.
