Storyline

This is a Director's Cut version of the jury awarded "Best Actor" and "Best Special Effects" which competed with 55 teams. The original film had to be written, filmed and edited within 48 hours. It was produced and directed by Bontrager Twin Productions - Lawayne and Dewayne Bontrager.

Answers to questions we've been asked, if you care: Spoiler Alert!

3 36" helium balloons and a camera rig we made (to keep the camera level) were used to get the birds-eye-view shot of the parking lot.

The shopping cart is actually what spawned the entire idea. Dewayne saw it one day at our client's warehouse and said "How can we use that in a movie?" He came up with the idea to have a boy making a box and entering an imaginary world like we did as kids. After choosing "Family Film" as the genre, we knew it had to be made. The concept of the boy in a coma and accident were quickly added with the help of our sister and it all came together.

We called in many favors from a customer of ours to make this happen...
