-Would you like to tell me a little bit more about the short film?

The film tells the story of Walt who is a dopey down on his luck bike messenger,who falls in love with this girl on his route and in order to win her over he brings her a flower every day to try to win her heart.His friend Pike doesn't like what is going on so he tries to prevent them from from getting together

-Is there a bit of a sabotage situation going on here?

Yes, more than a bit the friend is 'actively' trying to get Walt from getting together with this girl

-How did you come up with the idea for this movie? What inspired you?

I wrote the script and I was sent this idea and both of us fell in love with this idea and some of the secrets that I cant give away. I thought it would be a great little short film. Years later when we dusted it off, I was looking for a project to actually make I went back to that source email outlining the ideas etc I looked at it and changed a few things but we remained very true to that original idea and that original ending

-Which format did you shoot the movie?

We shot on the Panasonic HVX200 and it was all digital

-Are you enjoying this festival so far? What are your expectations after the festival?

Well the festival has been amazing has been a lot of fun met a lot of film makers who are like me making films and it has been interesting to see everything on the big screen. Also to see how it works on the big screen.

We are excited as this was our world premiereand has been a great time

The Hollyshorts staff has been great and helped us to connect with other film makers and meet other people

-Thank you for that comment!
