In the wake of a devastating hurricane, Christy and Denny, former baseball rivals, return to their native ball field to partake in their annual tradition. An at bat. It's about talent. It's about honor. But most importantly---it's about respect. Written by
The idea for the film came after Kevin Allesee and Augustin Kennady attended an audition. Afterwards, Kevin expressed his desire to work on a baseball film. A rough draft for "Full Count" was ready the next day. See more »
During the fourth pitch, the curve ball, there were numerous football players practicing in the background. Fortunately, the "Extraction" visual effect blurred them, but they are still visible if you look carefully. See more »
Four balls, three strikes. A hit past the mound you win, hit before it, I win.

A promo copy of this short floated my way and I was pleasantly surprised when I viewed it.
The dry wit of the storyline and the mix of the score, El Mariachi meets hardcore punk, left me entertained and chuckling to myself. Several viewings later I still find this film as entertaining as the first time. The concept is simple enough but the delivery is clever and this short is filmed and edited very well. The acting is excellent as well. These people made me like baseball more than I actually do with this.
I'm very interested in what these movie makers deliver next.
