Under 5min. Festival Testimonial – March 19 2019

The Festival’s commitment to short scripts and film was attractive, and at less than five minutes screen time, short scripts actually have a chance at being produced. Paying the Night Differential was one of several short scripts in this time range I had on hand that I thought might fit. The feedback was insightful and motivating.
