Tell Gordon Hello was spawned off of Morgan Rodner's love of two things: film and comics. During a writer's block that all artists come across at some point in their lifetime, Rodner met Paul Louis Harrell while directing another short film. Rodner soon discovered that Harrell had a pastime of playing the Joker on Hollywood Blvd for tips which was the catalyst that put the wheels into motion for Tell Gordon Hello.

Fantastic short film. The mood of the film is very on the edge of your seat and claustrophobic. The hostage was superb as a man in trouble and worried about his family.

Fantastic acting,great sound and tight camera work will truly give these guys some Hollywood work down the road.
