“Plot Device” director heading to Hollywood

By Sean O’Connell The clip has been online for a few weeks now. But according to reports, “Plot Device,” the inventive short film about a fledgling screenwriter who unlocks a machine that generates story ideas, could be getting director Seth Worley a foot in the door at the major studios.

Worley, from Nashville, helmed this 9-minute clip about a guy who orders the “Plot Device” on eBay. When it arrives, it unleashes every overused movie cliché on his front lawn. Check the clip out here:

Now THR says Worley, 27, is “planning an August trip to Los Angeles and has lined up meetings with CAA, UTA, WME, some management firms and producers.” Worley first was noticed by Red Giant, a software application maker, when he submitted a fan promo for the ABC drama “Lost.” They tapped him to create a promo for their Magic Bullet color correction tool. “Plot Device” was the end result.

The clip spoofs everything from zombie movies to film noir. It leapfrogs genre with ease. But what genre would Worley choose if given only one?

“(Jon) Favreau, (J.J.) Abrams, (Alex) Kurtzman and (Roberto) Orci, I’m ripping those guys off in my videos,” Worley said to THR. “They are doing exactly what I want to be doing.”
