A young man wakes up in a strange girl’s bed which both excites and worries him. As he starts to piece together memories from the previous evening, he decides it’s probably best for him to leave.
Writer/director/producer: Matthew Evans
“The Morning After is a comedic short that is simple and hopefully funny.
The storytelling is displayed through a familiar style, though within a unique set of circumstances. The origin of the film’s style came from a simple thought: ‘It would be hilarious to see a Dr. Seuss-type story set in an adult situation.’
As a fan of the doctor, I chose to use some of his common motifs such as the narrator, a colourful and wacky set design but especially the rhyming.
As a filmmaker, my goal is to entertain and keep your attention. In this case, it means a few laughs and a little squeamish humour. Comedy isn’t easy but the response has been overwhelmingly positive, even from people not related to me!
If you crack a smile or give a chuckle during the film, my talented crew and I have been successful.”
