We've been describing it as "Brokeback Mountain at a Christmas tree lot".
Below is the synopsis, thanks for checking it out.
Down in the bayous of South East Texas it rarely snows, yet the desire for a white Christmas knows no bounds. But, with a little Christmas magic, and a lot of chemicals, flock can give you a tree covered in a fresh blanket of fake snow. Flocker, a narrative short, tells the story of Emmett, a young man who must decide whether it's better to stay in the only life he knows, or take a leap of faith and finally believe in himself.
So, What's It About?
Emmett is a bit of a misfit in his small Texas town. He is the flocker for the Thibodeaux Tree farm, lives in a run down trailer at the back of the tree lot, and he is in love with his boss’ son. However, his artistic flair for flocking trees has made his work popular far and wide. Emmett doesn't just flock the trees in the usual array of solid colors; from American flags to peppermint stripes he creates fantastical works of art using the trees as a canvas. Although he finds satisfaction in his art, he can’t escape the knowledge that he will soon be out of a job as the Christmas tree season is about to end. Not only will he loose the one true outlet he has for his amazing talent, he will no longer be near the owner's son, Seth. Seth is completely disdainful of our dirt-poor hero, but delights in toying with Emmett’s affections in private. When an opportunity arises to leave the confines of his small town and make a life that is truly his own, Emmett is forced to confront the harsh realities of his life. Our story is a look into one day of a young man’s life when he must decide whether it's better to stay in the only life he knows, or take a leap of faith and finally believe in himself.
