Where I'm calling from

S.O.S.

Matthew

Director:  Riley Gibson

Screenwriter:  Riley Gibson

Adapted from Raymond Carver's  beloved short story of the same name, Gibson imagines Carver's hard drinking 1960's working man, attempting to sober up at Frank's, a boarding house for drunks, where Ray's only solace is found in the gritty stories of his fellow housemates.

Director:  Russell Brooks

Screenwriter:  Jeff Barehand & Riley Gibson

"S.O.S" took home the BEST FILM jury award and the BEST USE OF DIALOGUE jury award at the 2014 Grand Cinema 72 Hour Film Competition in Tacoma, WA.  

 

Completely written and produced in 72 hours, this little gem of a film, follows Lisa, who cannot seem to hold onto a man until her mother gives her a "good luck" ring that brought Lisa's parents together.

Director:  Marena Teixeira

Screenwriter:  Marena Teixeira

This short won for BEST USE OF FLASHBACK, a required element of the 2017 253 Film Competition.  

Written by Marena Teixeira, it follows the life of a morose robot who can't seem to find his place in the world until he sees himself through the eyes of another.
