David Andalman and co-writer Mariko Munro are looking to accomplish something different with the coming-of-age genre. "Milkshake," their tale of 90s discovery and exploration, stars Tyler Ross and Shareeka Epps.

All the people making these how-to videos are seriously like 9 years old. We felt like idiots. It's amazing." What I Shot »
