OSCAR VIDEO: 'Time Freak' Team Finds Out They've Been Nominated

84th Academy Award Nominations

Not all Oscar categories are announced during the annual early-morning ceremony in Hollywood. So writer-director Andrew Bowler and producer Gigi Causey had to find out the old-fashioned way that their live-action short Time Freak made the final cut that punches their ticket to the Academy Awards. And like good filmmakers they got it on camera in one take — and still in their PJs.

  1. There’s a lot of songwriters that didn’t get to experience that feeling because the music branch decided to screw them.

  2. DEADLINE thanks for putting this up! It is SO GREAT to see a “real” reaction to an Oscar nomination and not something that has been polished.

  3. You know, this brought tears to my eyes. Love that raw emotion! I’ll be rooting for you on Oscar night, Time Freak…

  4. I saw Time Freak at the LA Shorts Fest. Very funny and quirky. I’m so happy the Academy took a chance on them. Congrats!

  5. Congratulations!

    Well deserved and that video is priceless and wonderful. Thanks for letting me share in your joy.

    I will be rooting for you guys!

  6. FANTASTIC!!! Thank you for sharing with the world— a pure moment of suspense and catharsis….good luck you guys!

  7. You can see TIME FREAK in a radical, one-of-a-kind setting February 11: at a circus in Brooklyn, NY, where the film’s editor will screen it as part of a cavalcade of live performances alongside clowning, puppetry, juggling, music, and more, the Super Fun Superfund Variety Show. Spread the word!
