Synopsis: A drunkard wakes from a night of boozing, only to go on the hunt for his next drink.
Release Date: 1997
The Drunkard was the second film I did at the New York Film Academy.
The assignment had been to tell a visual story with no dialogue and just music. This one followed a man who wakes up after a night of drinking, then stumbles along looking for another beer.
The short was produced over the course of about 3-4 hours on a Saturday morning in Forest Hills, New York. The two others in it were my fellow classmates, along with myself making a brief cameo.
