So, now that the school year is over, you might have a while to watch this fantastic and idiomatic video-clip. I wish you a nice holiday and just tell me if you are able to find an idiomatic expression thoughout the short movie.

Confessions of an Idiom from Amanda Koh on Vimeo.

As the author says: Everyone has Skeletons in their Closet but what happens if one day the Elephant in the Room decides to make the Skeleton in the Closet bring the truth to light? The Skeleton isn’t one to confess to his crimes so easily. Mayhem ensues in this power struggle with a world full of idioms.
This film was done by Amanda Koh and Mollie Helms at Ringling College of Art + Design. If you have any questions, feel free to visit my website at .
