Waylon Bacon’s Help Wanted: First Clip

By Mike Everleth ⋅ March 18, 2010

Here’s the first clip from a project I’ve been tracking for awhile on the Underground Film Journal: Waylon Bacon‘s Help Wanted. Bacon is a maker of short films (so far) out of San Francisco and Help Wanted promises to be his most epic project yet, about a dude who starts one of the worst jobs in the world. I’ve written before exactly what that job is, but this clip might play a little better if it’s left a little mysterious, so I won’t remind ya’ll what it is. Check the clip out, though. It’s got me very excited to see the final product.

Bacon has a great, grotesque sense of humor, which I’ve raved about numerous times, like when I posted up his Maggots and Poster Boy; or his short film My Worst Nightmare. I find his work very funny in the way the outrageous elements are played very low-key.

Help Wanted has been in the works for over a year now, and it looks like all the hard work is about to pay off.
