Does Love Last Forever? by Pete Baker

By The Glue Society’s Pete Baker plays like a traditional love-story – boy meets girl, they fall in love, the live happily(ish) ever after. It’s a story of young love (mix-tapes and all) and how that love changes over the years. A story we’ve heard a million times before…right? But what if the aim of this film wasn’t to (only) create a relatable, emotive romantic narrative? What if it was trying to do something else? Created for Cochlear, an Australian company specialising in hearing technology, Does Love Last Forever?

“Many precious moments are missed for those people living with hearing loss”, explains the film’s creative director Brian jefferson. Here at Short of the Week we’re always fascinated to see short form filmmaking put to use in creative and inventive ways. Being Batman by Ryan Freeman. We’re living in the age of the superhero.

Being Batman by Ryan Freeman

Rising from comic book pages, they have sprung forth to dominate both the box office and our collective popular culture. Heck, even my 2-year-old knows who Spider-man is. But, what happens when fantasy drifts into reality—when “real” people attempt to emulate their comic book icons? To answer that question, we turn to director Ryan Freeman’s impressive profile documentary, Being Batman, which gives us a tiny glimpse into the life of Stephen Lawrence—a man who has self monikered himself the “Brampton Batman.”

Lawrence, dressed as the iconic hero, ventures out at night to patrol the city streets. But, this story is more than just a quirky tale of a man who dresses up like a pop culture icon. “Through this film, my hope is that the audience connects with Stephen’s story and we can all be a little more understanding of one another.” So, is Lawerence a little crazy?
