Short and sweet: Packaged Goods

Upon seeing a Nike commercial featuring a rapping Charles Barkley or a music video with a voguing Madonna, how many people would pause to recognize the talent of the director?

David Fincher (The Social Network) shot commercials and music videos before being handed his first film, Alien 3, at the age of 27.

Packaged Goods at TIFF Bell Lightbox May 11 invites viewers to try to spot the next Fincher or Spike Jonze (Being John Malkovich) in its collection of shorts by international indie filmmakers.

I reviewed the package for the Post and I’ve included two of my favourites.
