Funny Short Film THE HEIST Accurately Spoofs Putting Together Heist Teams in Movies
In every heist movie, there is the obligatory scene where characters are introduced through a montage of the two main idea men describing who they are going to bring onto a job. It's a must have, which is what makes this short so funny.
Directed by Luke Harris, this short goes over all the characters needed for a heist team and some extras. At first, it plays itself pretty seriously, but around the time they got to Cockney guy from Cockney England, I started to lose it. It gets very weird very fast. I honestly could watch a 20-minute version of this ala 'Too Many Cooks' but this works well for a normal audience. It's a great short worth checking out.
It almost makes me want to see a connected universe heist movie. But don't plan it that way. Just make three or four separate movies about characters who "could" be involved in a heist. Like a getaway driver movie, which we already have plenty, but still, and a movie about a strong guy who kicks all kinds of asses, and a movie about an explosions expert, and then when you release the team up movie, THEN you explain that the others were prequels all along. Bam. Great movie. Or terrible. Let me know what you think in the comments and check out the short below.
