Trivia

In the scene where the boys are ditching the car, Snack gets stuck and can't get out. Because the seat of the car was really broken, and actor Josh Todd didn't know it, he couldn't get out of the car and really got stuck while the director and cast was yelling at him to hurry and get out. Everyone on set was laughing so hard, they decided to keep that fun moment in the final film. See more »

One of the best short films I've seen!
18 May 2015 | by See all my reviews

I've seen a lot of short films, and, often, the end credits are rolling before I feel like the film is "finished" and I leave with unanswered questions. Not the case with this gem! From beginning to end, this gripping short demands your attention and stays with you long after the credits roll. What writer and director Melanie Star Scot has managed to pack into 23 minutes is incredible... a feat of true talent! This short feels like a feature length film, complete with a powerful message, a great score, a talented cast, an engaging script... This journey that we embark on with a little red sports car is a journey like no other! Hats off to you, Melanie!
