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.

Broken link :(
Some people have a fear of snakes. That was a somewhat rational fear. And you could do something about it at least. Stay away from long grass and nature documentaries. Easy. Others have a fear of heights. That was manageable too. Avoid tall ladders. But how do you cope when your fear is something you can’t avoid? That you have no hope of staying away from? Being afraid of the sky, where are you going to go?

The ultimate teaser is one you don't even get to watch.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

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.
