A Little Behind: A Short Film About Short Time TravelApril 25th, 2013
Steve “Steve-O” Palmer is a part-time chef and full-time time traveler. He learned to build a time machine from a YouTube video and went back in time. Unfortunately, he now lives his life stuck three seconds in the past. His best friend, David “Dave-O” Strauss, doesn’t quite believe him but his girlfriend, Jen Miller, fits in well since she’s a bit slow already. But when Steve-O begins to get frustrated with being out of sync with the rest of the world, he reaches out for help in the only way he can think of: he creates a time capsule to send out his distress call. Fortunately, a German professor from the future receives his message and is able to help.
The film was created by director Paul Slater as part of the Taos International 48 Hour Film Project 2012, which means it was written and filmed in less than 48 hours.
