Featured Release 8/23/2013 – This is John directed by Jay Duplass

This is John directed by Jay DuplassEvery Friday, Fandor’s curators serve up a newly available film worthy of special attention. This week’s Featured Release is the short film This is John directed by Jay Duplass.

“…a short masterpiece made for the price of a tape about a man who struggles to leave the perfect outgoing message on his answering machine.” – Liz Cole, Shooting People

Brothers and frequent collaborators Jay and Mark Duplass announced themselves to the film world with their 2005 breakout indie hit The Puffy Chair and have gone on to amass considerable critical acclaim, not to mention an ardent fan following, with a series of successful projects (perhaps you’re familiar with their more recent offerings Cyrus or Jeff, Who Lives at Home). But they got their start, like most filmmakers do, crafting short films like the amusing and surprisingly relatable This is John, which captures with great humor and compassion the impossible task of recording the perfect outgoing voicemail message.
