Time Freak is a 2011 short comedy film written and directed by Andrew Bowler, and produced by Gigi Causey. The film was nominated for the 2012 Academy Award for Best Live Action Short Film.[1] The time-travel comedy was inspired by other time-travel movies like Primer and Back to the Future.[2]

Bowler and Causey decided to produce the film after they got married, spending the $25,000 they had saved to buy an apartment in New York. The film was rejected by several film festivals, including Sundance, Telluride, and Tribeca, but the couple submitted it to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which selected the film as a nominee for the award.[3]

The film stars John Conor Brooke, Michael Nathanson and Emilea Wilson. Brooke and Nathanson are roommates, but Nathanson hasn't been home for three days, so Brooke goes to Nathanson's lab in a run down building to check on him. Nathanson has just perfected the time machine he had been working on, but is behaving oddly. It turns out he has been re-doing the events of the day before, trying to perfect his interactions at a dry cleaner and with a woman (Wilson) that he wants to impress.
