Did You Know?

Due to malfunctioning editing/computer equipment, the entire film was edited on a 2 inch video camera screen. The feed from the computer was rerouted out of the computer and the monitor being used happened to be the VCD screen. Needless to say, it took over 5 months to edit the film.See more »
Errors in geography: Although set in Connecticut, the film was actually shot in Los Angeles, thus the occasional palm tree creeps into certain outdoor scenes.See more »
Bret:Uh, how old are you?
Trish:Old enough.
Bret:And how old is that?
Trish:How old do I look? I'll give you a hint, I'm legal.
Bret:Legal for what?
[Trish rolls her eyes]
Bret:Oh, okay, so you're sixteen.
Trish:And you are?

Serious Potential, 11 May 2009
Author: michael-a-resendez from United States

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

When I finished watching this film a couple of things came to mind that really stood out ... It covered all the major points for a film ... It had beginning, middle, end ... It had a good plot ... all in all it had structure ... Considering this film had no budget ... gorilla shooting ... actor's bailing out ... taking all that in for consideration ... The final product was decent ... Now if this movie had backing ($$$) behind it ... well sky's the limit ... As far as the 3 main leads go ... I feel that Bret on camera ... ??? ... Jim was decent and did his character justice ... Willard has serious potential & wish he had more camera time ... all in all good job by cast and crew.
