*Online Premiere* A guileless shoe designer is determined to make her sneaker pitch a success despite her nerves and general awkwardness in this comedy short directed by Rachel Wolther written by and starring Amy Zimmer.
Before she even enters the room, she’s embarrassingly overeager (“I’m really excited to world-build with you guys”). And confronted with the group of execs ready to hear some fresh new ideas, she breaks down completely, unable to stammer out a sentence beyond, “sneakers are my life.” Not helping is a protest march raging outside the office window (presumably concerning the company’s unethical business practices) that further drowns out the would-be designer’s muddled, whispered ideas.
Wolther most recently co-directed the experimental dance extravaganza, "Snowy Bing Bongs Across the North Star Combat Zone" following the Cocoon Central Dance Team through time and space. She keeps it simple here allowing for writer/comic Amy Zimmer to squirm her way through the meeting with a hilarious inability to communicate. (4 minutes). Directed by Rachel Wolther. Starring Amy Zimmer, Ana Fabrega, Jaboukie Young White, Gary Richardson, Bardia Salimi and Andrew Tisher.
