Benh Zeitlin's "I Get Wet"

My entire artistic life, thanks to Josh, has just been transformed. He just showed me Benh Zeitlin's short film "I Get Wet."

I Get Wet is the story of a boy and his best friend Superdog, a girl in his class whose "real name is a secret." It's shot at 30fps with child acting that's incredibly bad, completely unselfconscious and absolutely winning.

Good short films always feel like something new, but it's rare to see a movie that's actually made of completely different building blocks than what we usually think of as "good production values" and "sound directing."

More on I Get Wet.

  1. Wow, what an amazing little movie that was! Makes me want to go out and shoot something super low-budg in Prospect Park.
