Flopsee & Buttercup | Short Film
A short dark comedy directed by Freddie Conner.
After 25 years as a professional clown, Flopsee develops stage fright and is booed at a children’s birthday party. Accused of “going number two” in his pants and fired from the clowning agency, Flopsee refuses to take his costume off. Despite couples therapy and ultimatums from his wife, he pushes his marriage to the brink. Clinically depressed, he lies in bed all day. On the rare occasions when Flopsee leaves the house, he has vicious custard pie fights with the local clowns.
This short film is currently enjoying a successful run at film festivals.
