Point B

An enterprising friend of mine named Conor Long has created a masterpiece feature called "Point B." I could explain the premise in so many words but the brief description on the IMDB page does it the best.

"Four friends and Graduate students in the physics department of their University discover their clean energy machine actually works as a crude, rudimentary teleportation device. Through experimentation, adjustments and some misuse-use of the device, it is quickly discovered that the machine holds many consequences."

This film was an absolute blast to work on! Nobody got paid, nobody could be there 100% of the time and for the most part the food wasn't great, but for some reason it was the single most collaborative effort I've ever seen go into a film. 

I believe this is due in no small part to the amazing commitment of the writer David Gitlin and actors. David wrote this screenplay in an incredibly short amount of time, (the legend states he did it in one night). However long it took him, he created a great story with tons of wit and humor and made it easy for all the actors to fall in love with their roles. In doing so, every actor was so enthusiastic about their job it was infectious.

I'm not even going to talk about my job on this film because there are so many people above me that deserve more credit. I will say, however, that when this film comes out, look for who may be dancing his ass off in the club scene!
