L.A.-based filmmaker David Altobelli is best known for his music videos, having worked with the likes of Cults, Hammock, Sia, Philip Selway, not to mention his work with Karen O from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs on the heart-rending short film Abandoned. But now the ambitious 27-year-old is entering the world of short film, teaming up with Grolsch Film Works to present Independence, his latest contemplative and wholly cinematic short.
As part of our ongoing Shorts Series, we're releasing Altobelli's short film directorial debut on YouTube tomorrow for all to enjoy. Check out the film's first teaser below, hot off the press...
Independence will be viewable right here TOMORROW on Grolsch Film Works, along with an interview with Altobelli later this week. Keep your eyes peeled, guys.
If you're a short filmmaker and feeling inspired after watching Independence, you can enter our Shorts Showcase competition where you can win the chance to be nominated for the 2014 San Francisco International Film Festival.
