There’s no such thing as a bad day out with your kid…
What are doing reading this? The screenplay is two pages long, give it whirl!
Still reading? Alright, alright, here’s a quick primer:
A father and son spend quality time on the lake – fishing throughout the day. The fish may not be biting, but the two soon discover that the key to a successful Father’s Day may be just a matter of perspective, after all.
Written by veteran scribe Dave Troop, Father’s Day is the best gift a Dad (or a director) can receive: a quick set-up that delivers a heartfelt, heartwarming, and absolutely unforgettable finale.
If you were reading the script, you’d be halfway through by now. Well, your loss. Seriously…
Simple concepts – well-written and well-executed – are a rare find in the short-film world. Like Celluloid Chicken Soup for the Soul, Father’s Day is a recipe pre-simmered and fully packaged to inspire.
This is the kind of script that audience awards were made for: a tender testament to the bond between father and son – and a commentary about the legacies we leave our children.
So if you’re a director looking for soulful, cinematic meditation destined to put a joyous tear in many an eye – this one’s a perfect catch. Don’t let it swim away!
Budget: Low. Three actors, two locations, and one great excuse to take a boat out on the lake.
