This is the first in a series of short posts from the filmmakers previewing the different films that will be screened at Portsmouth Short Film Night.
Tom Clark’s film, The Cola Man in Space, is an inventive and intricate mash-up of two things that wouldn’t otherwise come to mind together: a pop-up book and a music video.
Tom Clark has directed/produced Drop-Frame® (documentaries about Portsmouth and NH’s Lakes Region), and published 6 music videos for local bands. 3 more are in production. He went to KSC where he majored in film production. He also makes some of his own music. “The Cola Man in Space” is an example of his own song writing/producing.
The “Cola Man” is next to go up to the moon. But will he go without his cola? I researched pop up books for a couple weeks and realized they always seem to do the same things, just with different graphics. So I set out to make one with things I’ve never seen before in a pop up book. Such as two-player interactive games.
Come to Portsmouth Short Film Night on Sunday, February 24 at 7:30pm in 3S Artspace’s Store Gallery to see this and the other great short films being screened!
