I am a huge Wes Anderson fan and Jason Schwartzman is one of my favorite actors. This is just a pure delight to watch. I actually look forward more to short films from my favorite directors because they can actually have way more charm in it than feature length films.

It's a movie screening to the boy scout troop he's head of in he film and he's one of the funniest scout troop leaders I've ever seen. It's short and funny and that's what I like to direct.
