Two screen grabs from the reshot version titled Brovid19

Based on positive reviews of the short in the UK Film Review, Caveat Lector, and PopHorror.com, I decided to reshoot the whole film in order to have a more polished version. The finished piece, re-titled Brovid19, is currently touring the film festival circuit, and has played at Burbank International Film Festival, the Portland Comedy Film Festival, Another Hole in the Head, and the Berkeley Video and Film Festival, which awarded it “Best Covid Comedy” of 2020.

In this comedy short, Waylon Bacon puts his characters – two bros – on either side of a front door: the bro outside has an all consuming cough, while the bro inside is having a fit of anxiety. Bacon’s hilarious take on the pandemic is as humorous as it is true to our times. Unforgettable.Berkeley Times, 12/3/20
