The Objective

The Objective

A man finds himself alone on his birthday, until a mysterious stranger gives him a call and changes his fate forever.

OK, I am being a little melodramatic. This is a much more light-hearted than all of that. The Objective is a story of Evan Hume who is having trouble adjusting to a new town and the adventure he goes on that leads him to find the answer to his problem.

Considering the fact that it is 100% improvised, this is a really fun film to watch. It’s straightforward, well acted and manages to throw you a curve ball or two. For a zero budget experiment, it delivers a significant amount of entertainment.

Creator’s Description

On his 25th birthday, lonely Evan Hume is summoned from his couch by an anonymous benefactor to complete a series of challenges in order to regain something lost in his past.

This short film was improvised and shot in three days in the summer of 2007, without a script, as an exercise/experiment in creating a caper film with only one on screen character and zero violence/language.

It’s a pretty standard “quest” story told with enough flair to keep you interested. You’re definitely not going to find too many surprises but you really wouldn’t want to. (Storytelling 3.5)
