Father's Day
There's no such thing as a bad day out with your kid...

What are doing reading this? The screenplay is two pages long, give it whirl!

Still reading? Alright, alright, here's a quick primer:

A father and son spend quality time on the lake - fishing throughout the day. The fish may not be biting, but the two soon discover that the key to a successful Father's Day may be just a matter of perspective, after all.

Written by veteran scribe Dave Troop, Father’s Day is the best gift a Dad (or a director) can receive: a quick set-up that delivers a heartfelt, heartwarming, and absolutely unforgettable finale.

If you were reading the script, you'd be halfway through by now. Well, your loss. Seriously…

Simple concepts - well-written and well-executed - are a rare find in the short-film world. Like Celluloid Chicken Soup for the SoulFather's Day is a recipe pre-simmered and fully packaged to inspire.

This is the kind of script that audience awards were made for: a tender testament to the bond between father and son - and a commentary about the legacies we leave our children.

So if you’re a director looking for soulful, cinematic meditation destined to put a joyous tear in many an eye - this one's a perfect catch. Don’t let it swim away!
