2019 Voices Heard Films: The Survivor's Guide of a Newspaper Carrier

The Survivor's Guide of a Newspaper Carrier by Klifford Barkus
Reedsburg, WI (Milwaukee Premiere)
Running Time: 9 minutes
Screening Time: Friday, Sept 6th 9pm

How do you piss off a small town first thing on a Sunday morning? Answer: by not having their newspaper delivered to them on time.

This newspaper carrier has the ultimate challenge on his hands as he attempts to complete his delivery route - in one piece. Now he's battling with bought time and angry customers while trying to avoid trouble at any cost.




Director's Bio:

With his third and darkest short film to date - Last Resort behind him, Wisconsin filmmaker Klifford Barkus shifts back to his comedy roots for his fourth short film, The Survivor's Guide of a Newspaper Carrier. This eight minute short tells the story of a newspaper carrier trying to survive his Sunday morning delivery route, while working behind schedule.

The Philly-born/South Jersey raised native discovered his film passion after relocating to Wisconsin. Two years and handful of projects later, Kliff is starting to make a name for himself in the local indie circuit.

Kliff hopes to someday expand his film horizon in indie feature projects, both in front of and behind the camera.

Director's Statement:

Filming this project was very fun while tricky at the same time to do. A lot of planning ahead, one-takes and sometimes shear luck were involved. This film is loosely based off actual experiences. Some scenes were coincided with direct work.

The best way I can describe this film/experience is having a passion for something but you can't quit your day-job just yet. The next best case is to combine both scenarios and make the best of it!!!!!

Keep pushing forward,
