Uncle Jack by Jamin Winans

I wrote about Jamin Winans’ Ink quite some time ago but it wasn’t until this past weekend that I finally got to watch it — and I was not disappointed. I found Ink very entertaining, intriguing with its own mythology, and quite emotional in places. I’ll be posting a full review at Filmwell soon, but suffice to say, Ink is highly recommended and Winans is a filmmaker to keep your eye on.

Which brings us to Uncle Jack, a five-minute short that Winans did back in February for Pentax and that stars several of Ink’s actors. Despite being less fanciful and fantastical than Ink, Uncle Jack contains the same cleverness, style, and interest in the power of stories and storytelling.
