Count to a Hundred is the story of Thomas, a 6-year-old boy who loves adventure but, bored with the quiet life of his family’s farm, he plays hide and seek with his reluctant teenage sister. While he hides in the shadows of the barn, Thomas witnesses two sketchy men unloading a heavy sack. A mystery is raised: could this be a dead body? Terrified and thrilled, he follows the men and soon notices that Michelle is missing. Thomas then watches his father speak with the men and strains to get his father’s attention to warn him. His father calls him over and the men are introduced as the new farmhands just as Michelle reappears. So they must not be murderers. And that wasn’t a dead body. Right?
The film is fun and adventurous, combining childhood imagination with natural beauty. Inspired by the work of Terrence Malick, I hope that Count to a Hundred will also inspire viewers to be present in the moment and let their imaginations run away with them.
Unfortunately, I cannot post the film online, but if you contact me, I may be able to send you a link and password to view the film.
Thank you to all of my Kickstarter backers who were so kind in supporting me and patient in waiting for the final result!
