Mr. Gun is a fun slice of stylistic sci-fi, film-noir about a retro-victorian time traveler and his plan to neutralize the path of a destructive dictator before his rise to power. In an old warehouse, on a wasted back-street of urban Los Angeles, an eccentric salesman, named Mr. Gun, sells weapons to a brooding ex-con named Demetri. As the arms deal progresses, Demetri grows increasingly agitated with Mr. Guns eccentric sales approach and outrageously expensive prices. As Demetri reaches the end of his fuse, Mr. Gun offers one final deal. He brings to the table a strange, futuristic, toy-like weapon at a ridiculously low price. Taking this offer as an insult, Demetri becomes enraged with the dealer, and threatens him at gun-point. But, Mr. Gun has an Ace up his sleeve. In an explosive twist, he turns the tables to reveal a strange insight into Demetris powerfully violent future.

  9. Thanks Joe. I’m sure we’ll get together someday soon.

  10. Ben, I’m so glad to see that you’re still at it. Great short and of course, great acting by a hometown favorite, et al. Someone’s gotta throw some money at you so you can write and direct something really awesome.

  11. The one tweak I would recommend for this short–and it would be an easy fix as it just involves a couple of insert shots–would be to change the readout displays to look more Steampunk-ish as well. The green readouts with the squared font look out of place. Go with a yellow one instead with some kind of serif font. Design it in such a way that it resembles Jules Verne’s iPhone. Other than that, excellent work! Subscribed!

  12. Interesting storyline and twist, i like it :D

  13. Great movie man,
