We decided to make a cool short film about a toddlers visit to a local barber shop because quite frankly it would be cool. When you think about what a barber shop is the image of a manly bastion of testosterone and grooming comes to mind. A little bit of humor and beer and you are in for one hell of a good time.
Whittier Blvd has a long and colorful history in Southern California and Uptown Barber Shop was an ideal location to shoot. Not only was the location great but also Gabriel, the owner, truly has a knack for cutting young and old alike. A few months ago we took 6 month old Desi and 2 year old Nicholas Kotsios for a photo shoot for the inaugural issue of the Traditional Barber Journal and it was perfect.
So in a sense this video is a follow-up that documents a true traditional barber performing his profession on a toddler who is able to walk down the Blvd and recognizes the need for proper grooming. So we hope you enjoy the first episode of The Adventures of Dapper Kid, “The Kid and The Barber”!
Stay tuned for more short films in the GA Thanksgiving Film Festival 2015!
