Leading digital entertainment studio, New Form, premieres three never before seen shorts: Small Talk (created by Becca Gleason), Love Me Do (created by Gaby Dunn) and Press Start (created by Evan Beamer and Dave Child). Join New Form's development team and the project creators for the debut screening of these properties, followed by panel discussing how big ideas (in the form of pilots) are developed from inception to screen.


Writer/Director: Becca Gleason

Small Talk is a musical Rom Com in the style Nora Ephron, but with songs. When exes Teddy and June bump into each other on the street, it opens up an emotional can of worms and the prospect that they might get back together, but should they?


Writer: Gaby Dunn

Director: Mercedes Morgan

When a closed-off young woman’s alcoholic father moves in with her fresh off rehab, she must deal with his newly zen, emotional mindset, while confronting the possibility that she’s more like her father than she’d care to admit. LOVE ME DO is a dark comedy about a parent-child relationship where the roles are reversed.


Writers: Evan Beamer, Dave Child

Director: Evan Beamer

When a nerdy gamer Phil unlocks magic that turns his life into a game, he uses the abilities to remake decisions, make better choices and “advance” in his game of life. But now that he’s in the game, Phil will have to face the personal consequences for cheating at life and ultimately the powerful man who created this magic and started Phil down this path.
