Fantastic Short Film Friday: The Archive

And we are back with another weekly installment in our Fantastic Short Film Friday series, as we look to showcase films released in the "lesser" known form of cinema- the short film.

I'm going to make this post short and sweet. This week we have for you a 7-minute short documentary called The Archive. It's the story of a lifelong passion for music and collecting and is directed by Sean Dunne. Here's the synopsis:

Paul Mawhinney was born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA. Over the years he has amassed what has become the world's largest record collection. Due to health issues and a struggling record industry Paul is being forced to sell his collection.

This is the story of a man and his records.

Dunne has worked wonders and crafted a truly remarkable and moving tale of a man and his passions and the sadness sometimes of having to face reality. As a collector myself, well, this short really hit home.

I highly recommend people checking out Dunne's other shorts. To find out more information of the filmmaker and his other films go: here.

So as always sit back, relax, and let a lifelong love of music wash over you. Enjoy!!
