We’ve all missed the postings from Uncle Mack on the family blog lately, but now I’ve learned there’s a reason: he’s been acting in films written, directed, and edited by Carl Kotheimer, a student at the Savannah College of Art and Design.
The first piece is called Grief, and appears above. The second piece, called Desert Places, appears below. A trilogy is planned, so I’m looking forward to seeing the third and concluding part of the story. And for those of you looking for a little inside knowledge, I can tell you that the wedding photo that is featured in Grief was, in fact, taken on Aunt Corinne and Uncle Mack’s wedding day.
I’m biased, but I think my Uncle is pretty darned good in these two short films. Of course, the fact that he is playing a grumpy old man probably helped.
Well done, Uncle Mack! Well done, indeed!
ETA: Uncle Mack requested that I take the links to the films down because the director has entered the film in a contest and the films can’t be published anywhere else in order to be eligible for the contest. So, if you haven’t seen the films, you’ll have to take my word for it on Uncle Mack’s acting talents and wait until the contest is over. If we get clearance to do so, we’ll post them again.
