it won't be out for a bit but here's a little teaser I made for it - click on the poster to view


it's like a little prequel to a feature I've been writing, starring Missi Pyle.

The ultimate teaser is one you don't even get to watch.

It works :)

Wow. I love it. Everything about it. That opening shot, slowly pulling back, then the total and utter transformation, the choice of music - even the description in the logline "Lizzy Jo, who still lives with mom at age 45, battles her loneliness and boredom by robbing banks in the guise of a cowboy on her lunch break."

Cannot wait to see more. Pete, you are the genuine article. Is it okay if I share this?

Great teaser, the pace you chose is my favorite for any trailer. Ease us in, then jettison into the story.
Excited to watch the full short ~

His name is Drew Daniels, we've been shooting together for a long time, but he's known for It Comes At Night, Krisha, and the Sundance winning short film Thunder Road.
