The Video Dating Tape of Desmondo Ray, Aged 33 & 3/4 – 2014

478985882_640

Directed and animated by Steve Barker, “The Video Dating Tape of Desmondo Ray” is an endearing, poignant short film that focuses on Desmondo; a man in his early 30’s who is desperate for love.
The film was screened at the St. Kilda Film Festival 2014 and generated one of the loudest applauses of the night, and for good reasons!

Desmondo Ray, aged 33 and 3/4, lives with his father and talks to the audience (who act as the fellow singles viewing his online profile) about his life, his family, his job, his interests and his dislikes.
Desmondo is a charming, adorable and sympathetic soul; he has dealt with loss, loneliness and hardships for most of his life, and you can’t help but feel for the man.

Emotional, funny and even politically incorrect at points, “The Video Dating Tape of Desmondo Ray” crams a lot of content and character depth within the minimal 3 1/2-minute run time and it evokes a lot of emotion and engagement.

Clever, contemporary, cute and creative; “Desmondo Ray” makes for some pleasant viewing.

4/5
