Short, sometimes sweet, often interesting
In the dark animated short "The Watchmaker's Apprentice" (from Chicago filmmaker Julian Grant), the title character narrates his tale in song to an oompah beat. "I once was an apprentice in the clock making trade/and the miser made me work for every penny of my wage/'Till he found he could replace me with a clockwork machine/And he threw me right out on the street."
