From Scot, sadly, blogless.

Scot: The Porcelain Unicorn is the winner of the Constrained Cinema Competition. Filmmakers can only use these six lines of dialogue: 
"What is that?,"
"It's a unicorn," 
"Never seen one up close before," 
"Beautiful," "Get away, get away," and "I'm sorry."
What Keegan Wilcox did with 3 minutes and those lines is most excellent.
This could be the best 3 minutes of your day. I hope not.


and now I'm crying.

Thank you Scot and bb for sharing

Wow. I got goosebumps starting at 10 seconds in and chills at the end. Thank you, and thank Scot.

Oh you're all such soft-hearted people. Did anybody notice the cigarettes?

Filters weren't commonplace until the 50's. I had to look that up.

If you get the chance, check out the Russian entry called THE GIFT. Also excellent, but in a much different way. Just keep in mind what the lines they had to use are, that one's not subtitled.

BB, I'm betting Middle will like that one.
Thank you. Just....thank you!

Amazing, how I envisioned an entirely different scene when I read the script, compared to what the filmmaker created.

And isn't 3 minutes a powerful amount of time.
