I must start browsing Vimeo Staff Picks more often. This short film, The Gunfighter, directed by Eric Kissack and written by Kevin Tenglin is a brilliant comedy! The story is a spoof, of sorts, to some of those Ken Burns documentaries and other History Channel goings on, where there’s always narration to a dramatic historical reenactment.
In The Gunfighter, an unseen voice narrates a “Ballet of Death” in an old west saloon. The story goes all pear shaped when the voice begins spilling the beans on every one in the bar until a full on gunfight ensues. It’s very very funny stuff. Enjoy!
