Cut by Walter Gross
The audio-visual work of L.A. resident Walter Gross isn't something you should expect to love immediately. It's not water cooler fodder, or something to sneak a glimpse at while the boss is in the other room.
The story revolves around Scotty, a movie geek who has had his share of letdowns in his love life. However, things just seem to be giong just right as he might have met the girl of his dreams at the library. As the two talk and get to know each other it comes out that she is a huge Frankenstein fan - just like Scotty! She's checking out a book on the re-animated man although neither one of them is a huge reader. Scotty is just about ready to make his move, when all of a sudden he hears the annoying beep of his alarm. Turns out Scotty has been dreaming and as he reaches over for the Snooze button, he prays he'll once again find the girl of his dreams. The kind of girl who just doesn't exist in real life.
