On this installment of ZekeTalk, St. Louis filmmaker Nicholas Rousseau discusses his two short “hockey dramas”, 2016’s “The Ultimate Fan” and his new film, 2021’s “Super 8 Hockey”.

“Super 8 Hockey” is a 15-minute minute short film telling the story of George, a camera store employee and adult hockey league player (Clayton Bury) who becomes overwhelmed with inner-conflict when he discovers his teammate and friend is cheating at hockey. In time, we come to learn the real reason why this discovery is so troublesome for George.
