The “Shortest Film” is a film short about three strangers with apparent language barriers that features some seriously long credits. It was written, directed and stars John Elerick and also stars Harley Morenstein and Timothy Delaghetto. The actual film is about 15 second long, and the credit about 3-1/2 minutes. Who wants to read all those credits?
Anyone with a sense of humor. Here are a few examples of what is to be found in the credits:
