Portraying a part made famous by his father, Alonso Freeman stars in this short film parody of the Shawshank Redemption. You'll find yourself so excited, you won't be able to sit still or hold a thought in your head.

Released way back in the year 2000 as part of the Sundance Shorts series, the story follows a young Hollywood agency assistant who yearns to make films of his own one day. Kept down and abused by an evil boss who parallels Shawshank's warden character, the optimistic dreamer does his best Andy Dufresne impersonation and plans his escape from cubicle life. The film is available as a bonus feature on the ten year anniversary edition DVD of the Shawshank Redemption, but you can watch it here in these three parts.
