Brad Bischoff has three films on NoBudge. He's taking a modern approach - make films, post them online for free. Simple as it gets but not entirely commonplace. Here's his latest short, one that extends past the poetic nostalgia of Eyelids and For My Mick Jagger, into more narrative territory. He makes the leap effortlessly, maintaining his feel for the sentimental and adding real character development and nuance. Real life brothers - the Bischoff's - mine the rich territory of brotherhood and last nights and drunkenness and breaking into school gymnasiums. It's a physically dark film, often we can barely make out the characters, but it's got a heavy, open heart. Synopsis:
Twenty-four year old Brad commemorates what seems to be his last night in the suburbs alongside his older brother Tyler, who is on the brink of turning thirty and still living at home. As the hours dwindle until dawn, Brad struggles to confront the realization that all things must change.
