Mark Bellusci - 4'40"
Talk about an awkward, chance encounter. This is definitely not what either Karen or Sal expected or planned for. But now that they're in it, how the hell do they get out of it? A dark comedy (or a comedic drama - your call). Shot with a Canon 5D MKII, Canon T3i, Canon Vixia G20, and Magic Lantern. Edited on Sony Vegas Pro 13.

I loved working with this great cast and crew. All were troopers as we walked and walked in chilly December weather. And thanks to Franklin Street Works for a warm and tasty location.
