I saw this film at a screening at The Hollywood Film Festival and without a doubt, it was the best short film that weekend. It is the type of comedy that Hollywood needs to make more of. The cast is superb, Shad Hart is a genuine talent, Amber Mellott was captivating, and the writing and directing were stellar. Before the end of the film, I was applauding! I haven't done that since the first Matrix.
The film, in a nutshell, is about the rise of a young tennis player (Shad Hart playing himself, strangely enough). The film packs in every hysterical cliché from the teen films of the eighties (Teen Wolf, Can't Buy Me Love, etc.) in about a half an hour. The crowd seemed to love this as much as I did.
I hope somebody has the good sense to grab hold of this idea; I'd shell out good money to see the feature.
