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

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.

Pete, this teaser is WONDERFUL. Holy shit, this genuinely made my entire morning. Her performance, staying on the one shot of her in the car, jeeeeeez. I'm inspired. Thank you for sharing this.

first of all the handwriting joke is hilarious. that was a first thing i felt. then when she was driving out, it was the sunlight on her face that really touched me. and i found myself being pulled toward this woman, which continued through the rest of the short, leaving behind what's called an "indelible" impression. like she is in my gut now.

thanks Jenkins. I've just been commissioned to make a bunch more of these things to stay tuned.

That was extremely well done. There's no question you know where to put the camera and what to do with it while it's there, and you've always had a knack for showcasing whatever's visually interesting about your locations, but I'm most impressed with the character work. Every character feels lived in and complex, even down to the bit parts like the bartender at the bowling alley. I'm hyped for what's next.
