Standing Up                                         30min

Paul Miller has been running away his entire life. He is
an amateur scholar of stand-up comedians, and
desperately wants to join the ranks. But his fear of
standing up in front of a crowd is insurmountable. His
biggest fear stifles his greatest dream. Finally, on his
28th birthday, he gets tired of running. He discovers
that it's time to find out if he has what it takes to
conquer self-doubt ... and realize his life-long dream.

Sweet Talk                                                90min

A troubled young woman and a blocked writer, both at

them suspected. “Sweet Talk” is a uniquely, sensual
tale about the transformative power of storytelling.
