It's hump day again, and to get you through the longest friggin' day of the week, we have a short film in promotion of the Newport Beach Film Festival (April 25th-May 2nd) that we guarantee is packing some seriously bloody bite. Check it out!
A short film created by ad agency Rpa and Tool of Na directing duo, Erich Joiner and Dp Robert Richardson, three-time Academy Award®-winner (Django Unchained, Inglourious Basterds, Shutter Island, Kill Bill: Vol. 1 & 2), and acclaimed screenwriter Lee Aronsohn ("Two and a Half Men," "Big Bang Theory").
