It's a man- (and his desk) on-the-street view of the economic crisis when Julian opens for business as an "open air admin assistant" in the heart of downtown. Envisioned as an indictment of the corporate world, the gig is soon too successful to let it go.
Before securing distribution, this short comedy by writer/director Matt Judge (who also served as editor, sound designer and composer) won awards and hearts at film festivals across North America, earning mention in the New York Times.

For years, this rough SD version was the only copy in existence. But a recently resurrected drive means work is under way for a fully restored special edition.
