TICK-TOCK / 2016 / 6 minutes and 12 seconds

A suspenseful, dark-humored short in the tradition of Hitchcock and maybe a bit of David Lynch thrown in for good measure. A cautionary tale of listening to your elders when they tell a story to you on a park bench. It's also about the concept of cinematic time/memory.

Directed by: Brendan Ryan
