Baby Time: A Slapstick Race Against Time

Baby Time: A Slapstick Race Against Time

Baby Time is an HD-3D short film, part of the Philips Parallel Lines series of films.  The Phillips collection consists of original short films using the same brief six-line dialogue, which this year was: “What is that?  It’s a unicorn.  I’ve never seen one up close before.  Beautiful.  Get away, Get away.  I’m sorry.”

Baby Time is a very creative, slapstick short film directed by Cédric Petitcollin, which won the People’s Voice Award in the 2010 Philips Global Film-Making Contest.  The film tells the story of a hapless actor clad in a unicorn costume, who is trying desperately to reach his wife in the hospital before she has their baby.

Matthew’s Secret: The Blind Girl and a Magical Unicorn

El Secreto de Mateo (Matthew’s Secret) is a heart-warming short film produced by Greg Fay for the Philips Cinema Project.  In the film, a boy leads a young girl, who appears to be blind, up into a building in a housing project to show her his secret.  The girl is introduced to a donkey, which the boy tells her is a unicorn.  The young girl is filled with fulfillment and delight, as she feels the magic of the moment in a life that has offered her so little.  However, the joy is short lived, as we are shown the difficulties of growing up when a group of bullies taunt the pair.  The boy stands up for his younger friend, but afterward it all seems too much as the brave boy is left to cry quietly in the corner.  Unaware of her friend’s pain, the little girl turns her attention once again to the beauty of the animal.
