Check Out Christopher Nolan’s Short Film “Doodlebug” that He Did as a Student

If you’re a Christopher Nolan fan (if you’re not get off of this site and never come back, seriously), then it’s kind of awesome to see his origins. I mean where did this guy come from? How did he become such an amazing director? Perhaps some of his early work can give us a clue? Christopher Nolan’s student short film, DOODLEBUG was shot on 16mm black-and-white while he was just a student. It’s an interesting watch if you enjoy his body of work.  P.S. it was made in 1997.

The story concerns a grungy man in a filthy apartment. He is anxious and paranoid, trying to kill a small bug-like creature that is scurrying on the floor. It is revealed that the bug resembles a miniature version of himself. He squashes the bug with his shoe. However, every movement the “doodlebug” makes is later matched by the man himself, and he is later squashed by a larger version of himself.
