The Patterns Trilogy + Other Short Films by Jamie Travis
Jamie Travis may be one of the most visually minded contemporary filmmakers you’ve never heard of. With passionate stories of suburban woe and obsession played out against surreal, hyperdesigned backdrops, Mr. Travis’s films feel a bit like a mixture of work by David Lynch and Douglas Sirk.
This set compiles five of his most acclaimed shorts in one package.

The Patterns Trilogy (2005-2006): A woman waits by the phone. A man watches a teacup spin. Are they lovers? Yes, they are. Now let's watch them sing and dance. A gorgeously styled, fabulously poppy triptych, The Patterns Trilogy is a singularly epic musical-thriller/anti-romance.

The Saddest Boy In The World (2006): Timothy Higgins is having his worst year ever. Always picked last for the team, this eight-year-old lives in a world of friendlessness, suburban complacency and prescription drugs. Now his ninth birthday party has arrived, and he prepares to upstage the musical chairs and birthday cake with a show-stopping suicide.

Why The Anderson Children Didn't Come To Dinner (2003): Travis's first award-winning short tells the gloriously surreal story of three seven-year-olds forced to endure their mother's culinary abuses.
