Hey everyone! Lee Ehlers here (Millenball, Chutes and Ladders). I need your help in creating Hard Crime, the funniest short film in the history of the universe (allegedly). Besides having an amazing script and a crazy awesome crew, this pinnacle of cinema stars not one, not two, but THREE alumni from the TV show Supernatural!!!

PLOT

Hard Crime is the grizzled tale of Detective Vick Hammer (Matt Cohen), the world's toughest cop, as he and his wet-behind-the-ears rookie (Gabe Tigerman) race to stop a maniacal genius (Richard Speight Jr) from taking over the world.

This madman has everything: power, money, handsomeness, and an army of thugs willing to do his bidding. All Hammer has is his guts and guile... oh, he also gets a huge boner whenever crime's afoot!

***NOTE: There is no nudity in the film.

THIS IS THE FLUX CAPACITOR OF MOVIES! WHERE DID THE IDEA COME FROM?! 

Hard Crime is Patrick Daniel/Lee Ehlers not so subtle jab at the never ending litany of super cop TV shows clogging the airways. Programs featuring an all-knowing hero with a "special talent" for catching bad guys (Lie to Me, The Mentalist, Blind Justice, The Sentinal, need I go on?). 

THE TEAM

Writer/Director: Lee Ehlers

Creator: Patrick Daniel

Producer: Matt Cohen

Actor/Actresses: Richard Speight Jr, Gabe Tigerman, Katheryn Fiore, Mandy Musgrave, Matt Cohen
