"Sometimes in life, there are secrets that once told... change everything"
"Burn" is a short film from Square Wheel Productions that tells the story of how a young awkward man attempts to harbor an unusual secret.
One of the things we've all learned by now is that "What we do in the dark, eventually comes to the light'.
But what we don't expect, is that when our secret finally comes to the light that it will be met with an even bigger one!
We watched Square Wheel's short film and here's what we thought of "Burn"...
Burn's Approach To Story-Telling Is Refreshing
When you first begin watching "Burn" you are greeted by the warm narration of Ian Curd, as he begins to tell Hugo's story.
Hugo(Carlton James) is the young awkward man with the unusual secret that we talked about above.
He is a character of routine and peculiar discipline. He spends his time playing with action figures, reading and going to the local Bean & Gone cafe.
The significance of The Bean & Gone is that this is the place where he meets a young woman named Penny(Holly Rhodes) who has caught his eye.
Penny is a mute and even though she can't be heard, it appears that she too has taken a slight interest in the unusual Mr. Hugo.
As the short film moves along, Hugo and Penny begin to interact in a sense which mainly involves him talking and her smiling..a lot.
But, something most odd happens one day after Hugo offers to take Penny to his special place in the woods.
If you want to know what happens and just what strange secret Hugo has, well you've got to watch the film.
After Watching, Burn...
We are thrilled that the indie spirit is still alive and well! It's always refreshing to see an original idea presented to the masses for their own interpretation.
"Secrets are sometimes the things that separate us from others, but they can also be something wonderful to bring people together"
