Good Luck Marc


Marc wins an apartment. He loves it, until a few months in when he notices that the place is slowly shrinking.


Good Luck Marc is fantastical short film about a man living in a space that slowly rejects him and his attempt to stay no matter what.

Good Luck Marc is based off a short story I wrote years ago. It was inspired in part by the short story by Dino Buzzati ‘Pauvre Petit Garçon!’ (Povero bambino!) The stories are nothing alike, but the delivery and pay off were very influential. The film was made at The London Film School during my Filmmaking master’s program.
