Quite Contrary

2005 · 7:49 · written by Kelly Barrett, Eamon Bobowski & David Wallace · produced by Bjorn Munson · directed by Nello DeBlasio

Making a good first impression at a job interview is critical, as Mary well knows. But from the start, fate seems to be working against her. She oversleeps, and has to scramble to get ready. She can’t find a taxi, and has to walk from her hotel to the office. She can’t get into an overly crowded elevator, and has to take the stairs. But despite the setbacks, she manages to make it to the office on time, only to discover that — before she can utter a single syllable — the atmosphere is quite contrary to what one would normally expect. And that atmosphere becomes more bizarre with each passing moment.

“Quite Contrary” — a comedy — was Tohubohu’s second entry in the 2005 48 Hour Film Project, and marked the directorial debut (on film, anyway) of Tohubohu acting veteran Nello DeBlasio. It, too, was written, shot, and edited over the weekend of April 29–May 1, 2005, and was first screened at the AFI Silver Theatre on Wednesday, May 4.
