Reading Time: 1 minute

Every once in a while, there’s a film that wows everyone with the concept and the art of film-making that it shows. When it comes to feature films, it takes time because it takes time to make feature films. In the case of short films and web films, the time difference between one awesome film and another can as less as a day – given the speed at which short films make their way onto the streaming screens. The Pavement in one such film – it will change the way films are narrated.

The film is one incident that has several versions – all coming from the man who’s narrating the film. There are several ideas about storytelling, one of them being that narratives are only point of views. At the time of writing, there’s no better short film that we know that proves this.

What’s WOW: One of the first times that we have seen a linear narrative throwing so many twists and that too so quickly. The story changes and evolves almost in every frame once the major twist is shown. We also love the sepia tone that’s used – it gives the film a more surreal look and draws the audience towards it.

What’s Blah: Absolutely nothing.

Parting Shot: This is one of the best short films we have seen in recent times.

Director: Taylor Engel
