Samurai Sword, Directed by Stanley Sievers (United States) - A down-and-out loser spends all his money on a cursed sword in hopes that unlocking its power will change his fate for good. Featuring Stanley Sievers (Funny or Die), Eli Coyote Mandel (Saturday Night Live), Jo Scott (Joe Pera Talks With You on Adult Swim), Katrina Naficy (Comedy Central), and Miranda Roldan (Law & Order SVU). Produced by Keep or Destroy. Prior to making this short, I had written/directed a lot of things, or just directed projects, or just acted in projects, but I felt like I had never made something that was 100% my voice. That was my goal here, to make a short that was my voice and something that I really love. This short is about realizing when your behavior/inability to let go of the past is hurting the people you care about and that if you want your life to improve, you must first take a look at yourself.
