Jason Wishnow makes movies. He also makes things that aren’t movies but are very much movie-like.
He is the “film director at large” at TED. Here he supervised the video team through the first half-billion views.
And now Wishnow presents Mister Handsome, a 14-minute short film that he directed.
It’s “a love story between a grown-up girl and a mysterious friend from her childhood (plus a case against moving in with your parents)”.
Wishnow questions and answers two assumptions about the film:
Q: Is this a romcom?
A: Kind of. It's more of a dark parody of a romcom.
Q: Because I don't watch romantic comedies.
A: Not a question. And yes… you do.
Now Wishnow simply advices you to “butter up some popcorn, sit back on your comfiest couch, and enjoy!”
