Storyline

Tom doesn't usually do too well when his blood needs to be taken. This time it isn't different. He fainted and fell with his head on the floor. It wasn't too bad, he only was a little bit dizzy and went to home soon. The next day, however, trouble begins when Tom enters a tunnel in his car. Suddenly he gets a blackout. The blackouts continue, day after day, examination after examination. When he browses the internet, he learns a new phrase: panic attack. He has all the symptoms. This doesn't really help him though. The trouble only gets worse. Written by Arnoud Tiele (zelva@tiele.nl)

Quotes

Thomas Andrew Putnam: September 11th happens and I'm in absolutely no condition to deal with it. I wake my wife up in the middle of the night. I smell poison gas. I hear an airplane crashing. There's someone speaking Arabic in our backyard. I start buying guns. I buy a gas mask, I buy a hasmat suit. I'm in the process of buying a geiger counter, when our Mastercard bill arrives... I'm in trouble.

The best piece of filmmaking from Tom Putnam yet...
1 February 2003 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

All right, of course I might be biased but I think this is an excellent short film that embodies everything that independent cinema should and can be. Everything from it's confessional narrative style to the in camera opticals and use of reversal stock is contrary to what I've come to see in short films lately. It proves that a short film can be just that and not a commercial made for the purpose of procuring an agent or (as the latest trend seems to be) being bought by a commercial agency to use as an advertisement for a product. All that and it's entertaining with a human story that everyone can relate to. Whew! Anyway, if you can find it, check it out. Mr. Putnam obviously set out to prove he's a filmmaker and tell a good yarn about himself and succeeds tremenously in both.
