The Driving Accident

During an afternoon of play a young boy must use his wits and creativity to recover from a minor tragedy.

Film notes

The Driving Accident is my fourth short film. It has a fairly simple plot, and the story is largely driven by the personality of the lone actor in the film, my very talented son, Skyler. My previous short films have focused largely, or entirely, on elements from the natural world. However, in The Driving Accident a single human character interacts with an entirely man-made environment. This is due in no small part to the fact that, although the film is supposed to take place in the summer, it was shot in the dead of winter.
