A call in the middle of the night wakes up a man - it's his mother, she's been kidnapped. For her to live, he'll have to do something he never thought he would. This 5 min short film serves as  part of a pitch for a horror tinged show.  We were lucky enough to work with AJ Bowen (The Son), Will Wallace (The Kidnapper), and Julia Silverman (The Mom).

This is a personal project done for myself. It's the result of a Friday Night with nothing to do and a weird song stuck in my head. Kids seems to enjoy it. I enjoy it too. Maybe you will too. Worst case scenario, you only wasted 16 seconds.
