Films with names like, “Bitter Taco, ” Professional Conduct Becoming of an Elite Spy,””The Reward, ” “South Down Orchard,” “Cray Charlie,” “hold Up Heart,” “Brothers,” “Boxer On the Wilderness, ” and “Ganas”.
“Bitter Taco” giving us the taste of fantasized revenge, over the ever present broken heart is one film not to miss. “Criminal” giving us the feeling of there is hope out there and all will be avenged. An Anti Super Hero seeks revenge and takes on the whole city.
Then we have “GANAS” which treats us to what do you do when you are held captive with your lovers, lover? Morgan Clay (Director), gladly and with slight humor takes us there in this film short of two women who due to loving a man get screwed then unglued. An interesting statement on another side of infidelity.
“The Biggest challenge with this film was the December 2013 rain,” says Director Dan Eccles.
Then along came Charlie, “CRAZY CHARLIE”! This short should be noticed by someone and someone soon. Crazy Charlie, leaves its self wide open to possibilities, left and right. This story could go to any of the cable channels, T.V. series, or a feature film. Keep your eyes on the writing and the twist and turns in Crazy Charlie!
This short film has so much potential!!! Potential to be a cable network series or a full length feature film. Congratulations Jejuan Guillory on such wonderful writing!!!
“Let’s All Go To The Movies, Let’s All Go To The Movies,Let’s All Go To The Movies.” Remember that cute little song, that invited everyone out to the concessions? Well, when watching Hollyshorts Film Festival, you will feel that happy feeling that comes when that tune is played.
Alexandra Boyd director/writer, brought us her fantastic 6 minute original trailer, turned short film of Boxer On The Wilderness. Alexandra Boyd’s inspiration was the true story of Hary Manteo who was an Olympic Boxer in the 1920 and 1926 games. Alexandra Boyd explained during the Q&A how she had to sell a jacket from the movie Titanic Crew for a 1000 quid to help raise funds to get the movie made. Alexandra Boyd also worked with Indiegogo to raise the funds to produce Boxer On The Wilderness. “Angels and Allies, like a train, jump on and off, or go all the way,” when making a film Alexandra Boyd told www.TheHollywoodTimes.net. Alexandra Boyd selected submitting her film with The Hollyshorts Film Festival due to learning that a film in the Hollyshorts Film Fesitval has a greater opportunity of being seen by the world audience. Alexandra Boyd was once and actress, now she finds directing and writing 10 times more satisfying. “Very, Very, Very, rewarding,” are the words she used to describe the focus and determination that Boxer On The Wilderness journey has given her.
