A student film with no synced sound, Babysitter is a humorous nine-minute short made as his graduate film for NYU film school in 1984. Eric Schwartzman narrates and plays the lead role of a young boy who tells his history with babysitters, and how his life was particularly touched by his last one, a teenager (Patti Seitz). The camera was operated by Cedric Klapisch (The Spanish Apartment, Un Aire de Famille), who also shot Feelings and included Solondz in his own NYU film In Transit.
