Short Film

An Atlanta cabbie is forced to change his plans when he decides to drive an unlikely passenger.

Inspired by the Pixar film “Up,” Takashi wrote and directed Detour as a personal challenge: could he tell a story, under ten minutes in length, that actually caused a strong emotional reaction in an audience? Could the story show a realistic and believable character change in that short amount of time? The dialogue became a deep study into character. The structure became a challenge of economy. The result? A film that was selected as a Vimeo Staff Pick with an Atlanta Film Festival premiere.
