SYML’S HAUNTING COVER OF “MR SANDMAN” FEATURED IN SHORT FILM TIM
22 July 2019
CONFIRMED FOR OUTSIDE LANDS AND HALDERN POP
July 23, 2019 (Los Angeles, CA) - SYML’s brooding fan favorite cover of “Mr. Sandman” has been used in new short film TIM (out now). The film was written & directed by commercial filmmaker John Grammatico and produced by Shinebox. With support from his team at Little Saint Media, John helms spots for brands such as AT&T, McDonald's, M&Ms and Ford. He's worked with celebrities like Meghan Markle and Anna Faris and his breast cancer PSA, Your Man Reminder won a Webby Award and first place at TED's Ideas Worth Spreading, garnering almost 8 million hits on YouTube.
When asked about the inspiration for his short, Grammatico said, "As a father, it's an interesting thing to step into your child's school environment. I guess I forgot what a complex world that can be. It's hard not to notice how some kids make choices to stand out while others just try to disappear. With TIM, I wanted characters from each end of that spectrum to confront each other. To make a connection. But I wanted to do it in a way that shows empathy for both.
TIM is a story for anyone who’s ever felt invisible. No matter our status in school or life, we've all felt that way at some point. So, I like to think that we all can relate to TIM."
Following a North American and European tour in support of his debut self-titled album, SYML is staying on the road through the end of the year.
