THE GALLERY – SHORT FILM
The Gallery is a confession.
Ethan is that type; watchful, deliberate, a curator. He is finally getting noticed as the artist he knew he could be. It’s success, blood in water, exactly what he has being waiting for. After the highs of his first successful exhibition, the usually tight lipped Ethan is feeling a little generous. Listen in, as he confesses the dark secrets to his success.
Unrequited love, swollen egos and a master manipulator paints the audience a very sordid picture. The artistry of the femme fatale and the blood red paint on hands caught red handed pump through The Gallery like veins as Ethan reveals how life imitates art and how art imitates, and perhaps dissipates, life.
Ethan is that type. Chaos, neatly framed in a calm exterior. He is splattered paint, hung of clean gallery walls. Ethan’s internal conflict is taken to extreme ends when he blurs the lines between art, love and life.
