About the Boy Who Ate an Oakwood Chair

What if you eat a chair to prove something? And your whole world turns upside down after that, unintentionally?

This short tells the melancholic and wondrous tale of Gerard, who is tremendously in love with the girl next door, but doesn’t have the guts to tell her. One day, he decides to do something nobody has ever done before: eat the chair he was always standing on, staring outside from the attic. From that moment, his whole life changes. He even gets famous and makes it to Hollywood, as a horror movie icon: “theee woooodmannn”!!! But the big question remains: is this the life Gerard always wanted?
