A Day's Messing is a silent comedy shot on Super 8mm film in the style of Buster Keaton, George Melies and Charlie Chaplin. It follows a NYC bike messenger as he is derailed from delivering an important package by an alluring female cyclist. As he searches for her on the streets of NYC, he falls into a rabbit hole of time, space and absurdity, filled with meticulously choreographed slapstick, heartbreaking pathos and stop-motion roller skates, until serendipity surprises them both. Written, directed by and starring a clown and mime, this film re-imagines the spirit and technique of classic silent comedy, without falling prey to the cliches of contemporary silent comedy films. It’s an original and hilarious cinematic experience.
