ONE LAST RUN (OLR)is a short comedy about 3 small time crooks from the neighborhood of Pigtown, in Baltimore MD, who need to find another score to payoff a debt. The film stars, John Makowski, as the one eyed "Branch Calhoun". The son of one of the most notorious criminals in Baltimore, Branch has found it hard to live up to his father's legacy. 

Teamed up with his two best friends, Marcus and Syd, they are known around town as "The Benz Boyz". This is for their love of Mercedes Benz cars and the luxury lifestyle. We spend the film following Branch as he makes dumb decision after dumb decision, only to find what he wasn't looking for. 

Yes, I know that last sentence threw you off. Its a short. I can't give too much away or you won't have anything to look forward to. 

DIRECTOR'S STATEMENT: 

When my good friend Ian Mattingly (co-writer) approached me with the story of OLR I wasn't quick to jump on board. I had been focusing on darker themes and wanted my next piece to be a feature film in that world. Plus I hadn't tested the waters of narrative short comedy yet and it wasn't something I felt drawn to. 

But after sitting with it for a month or two I started to see how I could take what was this simple comedy and make it unlike what I've seen comedic film to be and take it beyond just entertainment. To do this, every element of the film has to be executed and treated with the cinematic quality we praise in films that is outside of this genre. Not to say I'll be making an "art film" but taking the creativity of the image to the next level. 

I'm excited to take a first stab at comedy and see where it goes from here. Since working on OLR with Ian, I have written two other comedies, dark of course, that I plan to produce in 2012. 

Here's the trailer to my last short, MOTH.
