SYNOPSIS – In the blink of an eye our protagonist loses everything he’s loved. With nothing to live for he fills his life with a collection of self-deprecation to fill the empty void. His life seems lost until someone comes along to remind life is worth living even after tragedy.

Bottom of a Glass is a student short from Xavier Burgin, a Film Production major at the University of Alabama, which adopts the rather unique approach of employing a puppet as its main character. Bottom of a Glass features some striking black and white cinematography and is a touching short that sensitively explores its themes of loss and grief. It was named Best Drama at the Campus MovieFest at UA as well as being a semi-finalist for the Rethink Possible Award, and has recently been accepted to the Short Film Corner at the Cannes Film Festival 2011.
