2004 48-Hour Film Festival entry

Brian, an everyman cubicle-mole, decides to take a lunch break. Once outside, he encounters a strange man that gives him a mysterious box with simple instructions...keep the box closed. This sparks a series of re-connections with old friends, past lovers, and wayward synthesizer performers. But...what's in the BOX?

NOTE: This was our entry in the 48-hour film festival in Boston. For those of you unfamiliar with the festival, each group of filmmakers gets a genre, a line of dialogue, a character, and an object on a Friday night. You then have 48 hours to write, film, edit and score the film. It is turned in Sunday night and shown 2 weeks later. It's a lot of fun, but hardly an ideal way to create a film.

I'm not apologizing for Box know...keeping it all in perspective for you nice viewers :) Enjoy!
