Jack finds a couple of magazines
Well, maybe more than a couple...
Jackpot, dir. Adam Baran, 2012, USA, 10 min. 
Part of the “Fun in Boys’ Shorts” shorts program

Jack (Ethan Navarro) is a 14-year-old boy in the New Jersey suburbs, circa 1994. He’s picked on by bullies at school, but he ventures out when he hears about a cache of gay porn magazines in the dumpster behind a local mini-mart. Helped along by one of the models, sprung to life off the page, he faces the very real danger of being found out, but Jack will not be denied his jackpot. Brilliant and beautifully executed, Jackpot captures the turmoil of a boy’s teen years. This short is also a preview of a feature film in the works. Highly recommended, a Must See.
