Input/Output



Input/Output by filmmaker Terri Timely and Park Pictures, is a fascinating, humorously surreal short that turns mundane activities on their head with unexpected results. The act of a girl turning on a light results in a dog with a cone reflecting words onto a wall, a man brushing his teeth looks on as the bathroom towels catch fire from his flaming toothpaste, SMPTE color bars fall out of the television like blocks and a man inflates a ball in his garage only to watch it explode to reveal a sphere of candy inside. The film is simultaneously creepy and funny, but interesting throughout.
