It’s just under a month until the 2014 Sundance Film Festival kicks off, but today Oscilloscope Laboratories made its first acquisition. The company picked up the 95-second short film Tim And Susan Have Matching Handguns, described as “love is swapping clips with your spouse in the middle of a three-gun problem.” The pic directed by Joe Callander is scheduled to have its world premiere at the fest as part of the Documentary section of the Short Film lineup announced last week. “Tim and Susan is a remarkably assured, economical, and entertaining film. Joe’s deft filmmaking and Tim and Susan’s undeniable connection will warm the cockles of your heart. We’re gonna figure out a way to put this film in front of your faces,” said Oscilloscope’s Dan Berger and David Laub in a statement today. No details on the deal for the short, produced by Dave Munson, Suzette Munson and Saddleback Leather, were revealed. The 30th anniversary of the festival, which runs from January 16-26 in Utah, will see 66 short films screened.
