At an open mic night, a young couple navigates a tense moment against the backdrop of an old comedian, a washed up country singer, and a crazed, oracular poet. The minimalist, hand-drawn short uses humor and melancholy to prod the depths of love and betrayal.

Open Mic won the audience award for Best Animation at the Brooklyn Film Festival, and will be screened at the Athens International Film Festival, as well Indie Street Fest and Aggregate Space Gallery in Oakland, CA.
