Two college freshmen say goodbye to their summer internship. “Farside,” written by and starring Matt Barats and Anthony Oberbeck (and directed by, you guessed it, Doron Max Hagay) is a short comedy about awkward farewells, the location of regional colleges, and who gets to keep the Farside calendar. As temp H&R Block interns, they formed a bond (“such a great summer”) but now it’s time to return to school. Of course, no bro goodbye is complete without planning a future road trip (which could be a challenge since neither of them know what city Auburn is in), and determining who gets to keep the Big Gulp cup. But the real item of debate is the calendar, which they both feel justified in keeping, and are committed to fighting for. Barats and Oberbeck are great together, as they were recently in their video comedy album, “Reveries”. Separately, Oberbeck starred in last month’s “Dad and Step Dad,” and Barats wrote and starred in “Improv is Love”. All of Hagay’s films are here.
Written by and starring Matt Barats and Anthony Oberbeck. Directed by Doron Max Hagay. Cinematography by Whit Conway. Edited by Michael Mezzina. Music by Magnetic.
