Writer/Director: Bobby Miller
Cast: Eric M. Levy, Megan Raye Manzi
TUB is a short film written and directed by Bobby Miller. Bobby is best known for his online show, The Reel Good Show, which is batshit hilarious (watch the BEST WORST MOVIE episode - it’s top notch). But Bobby is best known to me as one of the most courageous indie filmmakers I’ve ever met. Here’s the synopsis for TUB: a guy (Eric M. Levy) masturbates in his bathtub one night after his girlfriend (Megan Raye Manzi) won’t give him the goods. He wakes up the next morning to see a baby has spawned from the tub’s drain. Yes, you read that right and, yes, shit gets weird.
When I heard there was a short film playing at Sundance about a guy who impregnates his tub, my first thought was, “This sounds gross - I must see it!” I’m glad I stuck with my gut, the film is very effective. Bobby has a unique vision and it’s only a matter of time before everyone takes notice.
If you’re currently at Sundance, you can grab tickets to one of the Shorts Programs that’s screening Bobby’s film HERE. If you’re a festival director, I urge you to get this short to your festival.
