Best Film & Best Director, X96 Radio from Hell Film Festival 2011
Nominated, Utah Arts Festival Short Film of the Year

This gorgeous little short was done on a whim over the last weekend before the deadline for a local radio station's film contest, and took the top prize over films that had been months in the making. James Cawley is just one of those guys who makes it look easy. The bulk of the film was edited to an existing piece of music by Greg Downs, and I whipped up the opening and closing music in a few hours on Sunday afternoon, using the instrumental template from James' longer WWII film Reue which I had scored in December. He's going to turn me into a metal head.
