Storyline

The second installment of Frank Mosley's Perception Trilogy, inspired by Greek philosopher Plato's quote, "We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light." LITTLE BOY, shot on HD, is a 15 minute short experimental film. It is an examination of responsibility during the creation of the Atomic bomb during 1945. Shot on a soundstage to invoke the sense of theater, it highlights a moment in time where innocence is lost and only uncertainty lies ahead. Michael Morse is an anonymous man working for an anonymous sector of the Manhattan Project when he gets two phone calls in quick succession: that the atomic bomb has been completed and that his wife has just given birth to their son at the local hospital. What happens next is a fusing of past, present, and future, interweaving in the head of a man doomed to be the messenger of destruction. Written by third man productions staff

Brilliant Execution, Pacing & Style - Frank Mosley is a natural storyteller
26 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

With 'Little Boy', Frank Mosley doesn't insult our intelligence, but he demands our attention. A fearless and intelligent piece of storytelling, made with equal parts passion and calculation, an entertaining short film with dynamic style and nuanced performances, a short that takes several complex ideas and succeeds at sharing them with the audience until the very end. This is such a terrific short film! The pacing/editing/tension will take you for a ride through this wonderfully explosive film. I went to school with Frank Mosley and have watched his skills & talent continue to grow and expand. In my personal opinion, this is his greatest work to date. From the first time I saw it, I smiled because this is 100% a Frank Mosley film.
