Crystal’s Team Pick: “Half”, A Short Film

My bro Kate alerted me to this adorable short film. It’s called “Half”, and it’s the work of a Chicago-based filmmaker named Alex Bohs.

I’m no film critic, but I think this is a really creative and clever and beautifully shot. Visit Alex’s Vimeo page to read a little about this film and also watch some others.

  2. This was lovely, but the ending! Oh noeeeesssss!

    I can’t be the only one to write my name and phone number in my notebooks in case this situation arises…obvs hopefully involving a cute girl haha. Characters y u no do this? :(

  3. The ending was perfect! It was like a clash of alternate universe. It would have never worked out anyway you guys! They were like the same person! This was seriously adorable and so well done. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
