The Story

Daniel’s never had a lot of luck with women, so when he asks one-year-old Emma for permission to marry her mommy, he needs it to go well. It doesn’t.

Director’s Statement

  “The Proposal” began as a joke and became the shortest of my short films, clocking in at 4 minutes (including the credits). After finishing a feature film and a 30-minute documentary/musical, I really just needed something that would be fun to make, and let me spend some time with my family. Hence, “The Proposal,” starring Emma Grace Dull.
