Nose Hair & Peanuts Short Plays Festivals

SoCal-2014 Golden LaurelsThe short film I directed earlier this year, Nose Hair & Peanuts,  has been accepted into not one but TWO film festivals. It’ll make its world premiere at the SoCal Film Fest and play at the Orlando Film Festival.


Needless to say Mike Pusateri, the writer, producer, and actor in it, Jennifer Buhrow, the lead actress, and I are overly excited about this. As if all of this wasn’t enough we also got an amazing review at INFLUX Magazine from film critic Paul Booth.

Brilliant, suspenseful and achieves two spectacular goals; one it keeps you interested even though you think you know the ending and secondly, it breaks all clichés. Highly original, enjoyable, great writing, ingenious concept and no doubt a film that should begin a run on the festival circuit. Nose Hair and Peanuts is even tied into the dialogue (something only very well written television shows manage to do with purpose). Enjoyable from start to finish, one of the best short films this movie-lover as seen in five years writing about short films.

How incredible is that?

I had to cut a very short trailer for the SoCal Film Fest which is perfect for a short film so we’re using it everywhere.
