Not Short of Significance: This is Mary – Short Film
We all want to be important, in one way or another, and there may be many things around us that we’d like to improve. If only there was an easy, quick-fix solution. “Mary” the eccentric main character of Kevin Slack’s new short This is Mary has found such a fix.
After graduating from the School Of Visual Arts in New York City, native director Kevin Slack shot mostly music videos and four other short movies. In this funny yet melancholic short film, Slack explores a 23-year-old girl’s mundane life and her desire to be significant. The movie set in 1980s and has done a great job depicting the colorful mood of the era, from music to set design.
In an interview with Front Psych in 2012, Slack said that he wants to shoot feature films, and with this charming story telling and brilliant visual style it might be the time for this young director.
