During the first semester of my senior year of high school, I wrote, directed, and starred in a short film called Natie. The video’s about six and a half minutes long, and I tried to make it as close to an episode of FX’s Louie as I could. A typical episode of Louie tends to consist of a couple extended vignettes, and I wanted Natie to mirror that. Unfortunately, I had no budget, no actors, a terrible camera, and a classroom in the basement of my school. Still, I tried my hardest to make a loving tribute to one of my favorite shows. Let’s take this beat by beat.
