Jack Anderson Presents: “Wire Cutters”


By rizeabove / / Wire Cutters is Jack’s Anderson’s award-winning undergraduate thesis from his time at Dodge College of Film and Media Arts. The concept for the film started with a question: “What would happen when two creatures of logic have to start making more and more human decisions?” While the film has tones of science fiction, it was designed to be reminiscent of a western fable. Pretty rad stuff. See for yourself.
