Do you like birthdays? Did you ever wondered what it would be like to have them every single day; to get all the presents, eat the best cake, and have fun with your friends? Wouldn’t it be nice.
Bobby Watkins is a short film/fairytale about a young boy who wants everyday to be his birthday. And so to make his very wish come true, Bobby heads downstairs at night and fixes his mother’s day planner, crossing out all the holidays and making every day his own. But what he soon realizes is that it is tough to get exactly what you want.
Birthdays might be fun, even more than one at a time, but after having the cake each and single day, at the end you end up craving something else.
Bobby Watkins is a wonderful short story for grown-ups and kids alike.
Created by Whitestone, a motion picture company, the fairytale is an example of a wonderfully crafted cinematic experience. From the soundtrack (which is also available for a free download through the Whitestone’s website) and the amazing narration, to the beautifully designed set, great characters, and editing.
So I hope you will take couple of minutes and enjoy this cautionary tale, which outside of the moral of the story made me realize one more thing – next year we will have a much much bigger cake!
