Future Boyfriend is about the deeply creepy, somewhat charming and sort of hilarious perils of dating a surprise time traveler. Via Short Film of the Week:
The clever writing of this screenplay by A. Vincent Ularich manages to involve an immense amount of this depth in a mere 10 minutes. A film with a narrative such as this has to be executed perfectly, and executed perfectly it was. There are some key lines that really have substance, such as a moment in the beggining where Stuart tells Kaylie that he’s putting her purse on the back of her chair; a line in which is referenced towards the end of the short where he’s watching a clip of future Kaylie asking where her purse is, while present Kaylie simultaneously asks the same question. I found this to be really clever and well thought out. The performances by Bell and Morehouse we extremely convincing, with Morehouse coming across as a desperate creep and Bell playing the shocked and surprised role with skill. These two have a certain chemistry, and that certainly came across in the finished product nicely. This is the type of storyline that is both made for short films, but also difficult to sell in a small amount of time. Directory Ben Rock was able to quickly develop these characters, almost as if we knew who there were within the first minute, which really allowed for the plot to flow nicely.
