You Know My Name is a short film / music video that use’s The Beatles song “You Know My Name Look Up The Number” as the foundation for its narrative. The plot is about a young woman who goes to a dating agency looking for the man of her dreams. As the plot evolves a series of potential suitors and their videos are shown. All of these potential suitors mouth the one line of lyric from The Beatles song “You Know My Name Look Up The Number”. They are four distinctively diverse suitors and they are all portrayed by this short film’s director Angel Connell (Stocking Stuffers).

The song which serves as this short film’s foundation is without a doubt the most eclectic offering from The Beatles vast catalog of songs and the way stereotypical exaggerations in which the four suitors’ are portrayed perfectly meshes with this most unusual song. As stated before the only words spoken in this short are the words “You Know My Name Look Up The Number”. Even with this lack of dialog this doesn’t lessen the impact of story at hand. In fact it works extremely well because of the charisma of Betty Taylor in the role of the woman and Angel Connell in the role of the four suitors. Also this short film is wonderfully paced, flawlessly edited and each frame is carefully composed. Overall You Know My Name is an amusing short film that does a superb job telling its story via one of The Beatles’ lesser known songs.
