I sense I am somewhat late in the game, but the viral/ trailer for Goodbye To the Normals is excellent. 411,000 views on YouTube so far, and I received it on my Facebook wall (via google video) this morning.
A spot of light googling tells me that “Goodbye to the Normals” is a British short film, approximately 4 mins long, which follows a fictional story about a small boy running away from home. The film was originally broadcast in the UK by Channel 4. It is currently touring the film festival circuit, either on its own or as part of the British Council Festival Submission Scheme.
“Goodbye to the Normals” was commissioned by Robbie Williams and his management company, The In Good Company Ltd, as one of several short films commissioned to accompany the release of his latest album “Rudebox”.
I guess the fact that I came across this so late means I am part of the Long Tail?
