The Gunfighter (2014) - A lone gunslinger who walks into a saloon!

The Gunfighter (2014) - In the tradition of classic westerns, a narrator sets up the story of a lone gunslinger who walks into a saloon. However, the people in this saloon can hear the narrator and the narrator may just be a little bit bloodthirsty. There is really one joke to this short film and it becomes very clear early on what that joke is. Basically we have the narrator talking through everyone's intentions as if he were writing them and providing the context and detail only an author would know. This means the intentions of those in the saloon start to come out.

There is really one joke to this short film and it becomes very clear early on what that joke is. Basically we have the narrator talking through everyone's intentions as if he were writing them and providing the context and detail only an author would know. Fortunately the film is funny enough and creative enough with the idea that it makes it work for the whole time.

Eric Kissack is an editor and director, known for Role Models (2008), The Dictator (2012) and Brüno (2009).

Directed by Eric Kissack
Starring: Shawn Parsons, Scott Beehner, Timothy Brennen, Eileen O'Connell, Jordan Black and Nick Offerman
