What Happens After You Get a Short Film Into Sundance?

I first learned about the work of director Bobby Miller when he e-mailed me in 2009. The subject line of his e-mail read “Hi Dave! Long Time Listener, first time…uhhhhhh” and he was contacting me to share with me his work from his amusing video show “The Best Short Films in the World.

Not too long afterwards, I heard rumblings about a short film that Bobby was writing and directing called Tub. I thought the premise was pretty out there; the logline of the film is “Paul jerked off in the shower. Paul just impregnated his bath tub.” Imagine my surprise when I found out that Miller’s film had been accepted into the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. Not only that, it’s a pretty damn creepy and effective piece of work.
