The Big Wait

0

“The Big Wait” is a ten-minute short written and directed by R.W. Perkins, a Top 20 finalist in Canon and Ron Howard’s Project Imagination Film Contest. Based on a collection of unpublished rants by Perkins, also titled “The Big Wait,” the original written work consists of eight poems and a short story that ties the poetic narrative together. The film centers around longtime friends (Jim & Gabriel) torn apart by their interest in the same girl (Samantha), as the narrator (Perkins) seems to reflect, with a nostalgic sense of optimistic melancholia.
