Bleeding Lights by David Parker
David Parker's latest short film is like that Australian black balloon commercial without the hyper government message at the end of it. It's also a touch more abstract and poetic, as you'd expect from somebody who is one half of American artistic duo, Sunday Paper. Whilst Parker usually collaborates with Cole Schreiber, the softly humming Bleeding Lights is giving him a significant amount of internet traction as a directorial talent in his own right.

You don't need a degree in rocket surgery to figure out the metaphor embedded in Bleeding Lights. Basically, you need to turn off your lights, people. The film, shot over a couple nights in LA by two friends driving around with a camera, was originally intended to bring awareness to energy waste. Furthermore, the ghostly 'crying' lights also mean to symbolise the looming apocalyptic world we all face, lest we don't do something about our human tendency to exploit and waste resources.

The result is kinda like that '80s remake of The Blob but without the tragic B-grade actors. It's a powerful message and, after watching its brief 1.27 minutes, you'd be hard pressed not to want to do something about global warming. For instance, did you know that switching to compact fluorescent light globes (CFLs) will cut your household power bill by 75 percent? (Consider that Lifelounge's version of the humble government message.)
