Crackle! Pop! Zap! I loved the short film called Battery Daddy. I thought it was cute and funny. The director of Battery Daddy gave emotions, a job, and responsibility to an everyday, emotionless object: a battery! I have batteries all over my house. My computer and my book light both run on batteries. But I never thought about giving a battery emotions and a life. It’s amazing that a short film can make you feel such big feelings. My feelings were mixed when I watched the movie. I felt bad when Battery Daddy had to wake up early to run the bug zapper. I felt sad when Battery Daddy had to work all day even when he was at the beach. And I felt scared when a thunderstorm brewed; Battery Daddy might have drowned. But I felt so happy when Battery Daddy came home to his kids and they recharged him. I think that is kind of like humans when the parents work all day and come home to their kids. I am glad that SFFILM could send the short films out again this year. Otherwise I never would have got to watch Battery Daddy or write this report!
