Hello 2003 dir. Jonathan Nix (7 mins)
"This gently funny short is a take on the classic 'boy wants girl’ love story, set in a fantastical world where all the characters have music players for heads. A boy with an analog tape recorder for a head, is a shy and awkward romantic. The object of his desire has a more up-to-date digital device (a portable CD player). The metaphor extends when the boy seeks advice from a wise old man, whose head is a gramophone." Australian Screen
