Matteo J. Mosterts wrote, directed and edited this short film in which two adverb patrol officers, members of the grammar police, arrest a hipster for improper use of the word “literally.”

Titled Literally, the cinematic comedy short comes at a time when the English language is often butchered to fit into a tweet, when semantics are irrelevant, and when the word “literally” is literally not used correctly. However, it’s not only the hipster in this offbeat Mosterts-conceived world who’s guilty as charged; it seems that the lovable law enforcement officers also grapple with the same language issue.

Mosterts is a film director and commercial producer. His debut film Wally’s Will was awarded or nominated in several Oscar-qualifying film festivals including Palm Spring Shortsfest, HollyShorts and USA Film Festival. His second film, Afternoon Delight, was featured as Vimeo’s Short of the Week, and garnered over half-a-million views on YouTube. Mosterts’ commercial work includes TV campaigns for clients such as  Microsoft, Hyundai, Ubisoft, AT&T, Walmart, Mitsubishi, MTV, Fiat and Nordstrom.
