The short film, which premiered at Sundance this year, is more than meets the eye. Disguised as a cliché self-help guide with matching bold fonts and an overly optimistic narrator, it surprisingly wears its heart on its sleeve, despite being the product of a collaboration between comedians. Berman’s own directorial credits include “Comedy Bang! Bang!” and “Man Seeking Woman,” while the short itself was produced by JASH and based on a blog post written by “Conan” producer Aaron Bleyeart.
Filled with a silliness and humor that you’d expect from such a team, the short ultimately becomes more than a comedic fitness tutorial and evolves into a coming-of-age story for adults. Beyond the four helpful, inspiring, and informative tips that the short breaks down in a brisk seven minutes, look for a bonus cameo that you will not want to miss. Watch the short film above.
