Jennifer Garner stars with Alfred Molina in short film "Serena," posted below, from director Rodrigo Garcia ("Albert Nobbs," "In Treatment"). The twelve-minute short features Garner as a quietly deranged woman, desperately seeking attention from her priest by cataloguing a series of tormented confessions.  "Serena" is the first short film presented by WIGS, the YouTube channel founded by Garcia and producer-director Jon Avnet ("Fried Green Tomatoes," "Up Close and Personal").  Our interview with Avnet and Garcia on the founding and future of their channel is here.

WIGS' first series, about an ingenue photographer contending with an intense and powerful boss, premiered last week.  Both projects share a dark and almost melancholy vibe - and both are already racking up view counts.  After a week of posting episodes and series, the YouTube channel boasts 3 million video views.
