Check out the trailer for this short film produced by UW-Stout grad, Jacob Popek. Jacob’s short, experimental project has been chosen for the prestigious Flyway Film Festival Oct. 21-25.
Jacob describes “Outlier,” approximately 20 minutes long, as absurdist, focusing on identity, capitalism, filmmaking and artistic pursuit. One of his goals was to promote the feeling of “amble and lostness.”
“Outlier” was created and filmed while Jacob was a student. He thanked friends from the UW-Stout School of Art and Design for help, including students who filled a performance hall to film the lecture scene.
Jacob is a May 2015 graduate of the entertainment design program at UW-Stout.
