Product Liability- The Movie

Last year, I produced and directed a series of videos for one of my publishing clients. It was based on a Tort Law Textbook written by a Professor of Law at Baylor University. This was an unusual situation because I did most of the writing for this series. Usually, this client will send me scripts and I coordinate and shoot them. This time they wanted to get this project wrapped and ready in a hurry so they sent me basic breakdowns for each lesson and asked me if I could write each vignette and add a little entertainment value to it. It was a really fun project and a few of the vignettes turned out great. The cast and crew enjoyed one of the episodes or "lessons" so much that we decided to make a short film out of it and submit it to some festivals. The submission fees for most of these festivals are not cheap... so I can't go crazy, but so far I've submitted to the Newport Beach Film Festival, the LA Comedy Fest and the International Hollywood Short Film Festival. Wish us luck. Coming soon to a theater near you.....

“Looking to reignite his passion for cooking- and jump start his career, a young chef finds inspiration (and a secret weapon) in a late night TV infomercial. "Product Liability" is a former learning tool for law students, pulled from the archives of educational videos at an anonymous institution of higher learning. ”
