Thunder Road – Watch the top short film of Sundance 2016

You can now watch the entire fantastic one-take short film Thunder Road by Jim Cummings.  Jim stars as a policemane giving a eulogy at a funeral.  It’s heart rending and hilarious all at the same time.  It’s amazing.  Totally deserving of the grand prize at Sundance for shorts.

I was fortunate to meet and talk with  Jim Cummings and his cinematographer at the fest.  This little gem shows how creative you can be with very little.  Do yourself a favor and watch the whole 13 minute short.

Jim Cummings wrote an open letter to Bruce Springsteen asking for digital rights to the song Thunder Road, so that could show his short for free on Vimeo.  It worked!  And now you can see this short online yourself, without having to go to a film festival.
