OneCoolThingADay has found a pretty cool short film titled Your Lucky Day directed by newcomerDan Brown (not the author) and featuring Rider Strong (Boy Meets World, Cabin Fever). The fifteen minute short tells the story of an elderly man who discovers he’s won $156 million in the lottery.
A megaball drawing sends a convenience store spiraling out of control. While shopping at a convenience store, a young man decides to make his own odds. The store manager and a married couple are also mixed up in the game. Who will make it out of the store alive?
Brown is a Seatle-based filmmaker who created the opening title sequence of the television series House MD at DK, did a series of bumpers for the 2006 Sundance Film Festival, and has directed commercials for Nike and Microsoft.
