Public Apology: The Collected Short Films

Tim Sutton and Seth Bomse make films for a living and now they've made three short ones based on installments of the Public Apology column here at The Awl. Author Dave Bry feels awkward about them and won't watch-but the rest of us have, and we dig it.

Oh my goodness!

Wait, so that's Dave, talking, slouching, looking?

The one about Rory is definitely my favorite. Perfect pacing and images.

Also is that Dave's GORGEOUS KITCHEN? Or is it movie magic?

I know, at first I thought that he sent a letter to apologize and it was his neighbor reading it.

Ha, I didn't think that. I'M NOT AN IDIOT! I just thought maybe it was Mr. Seth Bomse or Mr. Tim Sutton, like, acting it out?

I DID think that. I wanted them to act out finding Dave passed out and then flashing back to Dave leaving the bar and so on. I think they should script these out. They would be hysterical.

It is. Thanks, Mathnet. You always know just what to say.

Dave, you as an adult enacting your younger slights while everyone else were their age at the time of the event would be ideal.

Better than Avatar.

Yes! I need some ironic pot belly in 3D.

Will your gay experiences be filmed as well?

No wide-angle lens wide enough.

Is it too much to hope for a film of Dear Julia Neaman, complete with a midpoint montage of some of the many people throughout history who have fallen for The Old Lamp Trick? Because I am pretty sure I could never be truly unhappy if such a thing existed in the world.

You lost me at Grizzly Bear.

I love these. Awww.

Please, please, pretty please, a book with an accompanying dvd?
I agree with kitten – script them and still include your current you.

Um, these are absolutely perfect for This American Life. Like, incredibly so. Would it be entirely out line to try and push these along to producers there? Unless, of course, someone else has already done this?

I want the WORLD to hear these!

I second pattycakes' request for book and DVD…
