Why Shorter Is Sometimes Better

What was I thinking?

What was I thinking?

People often ask – why the hell did you make a short film? Good question. Why did we make a short film? We certainly didn’t get rich off of it.

In this recent article in Connect 2 Media & Entertainment, the answer as to why shorter is sometimes better may provide some insight.

And what the hell… Odds or Evens is mentioned in the article.

A special shout out to talk-show host, Anita Rufus of K-News radio in Palm Springs.  Anita was kind enough to invite actor, Charles Baker and director & co-writer, Jay Gormley on her show to discuss our short film.

Leanna Bonamici, the head of Shorts Showcase also joined the conversation, which ranged from the importance of short films to why Charles decided to play the lead in Odds or Evens.

Odds or Evens To Air On PBS

Shorts Showcase
Thank you, thank you, thank you. Because you watched, PBS listened. Out short film, Odds or Evens, received nearly 2,500 views in less than two months. Not bad, considering it requires viewers to take 20 minutes out of their busy schedules to watch our short.

Since our film has received the most views so far on the Shorts Showcase YouTube page, it has been chosen to air on PBS (KVCR) in Southern California this Saturday, July 20 at 11 pm (PST).

To all of our friends and followers in Southern California, please tune in. For those in other areas, you can watch it here:

Finally! Odds or Evens is available on YouTube. You can watch the entire film, while improving our chances for a spot on PBS in Southern California.

The fine folks at Shorts Showcase in Palm Springs posted our film to its YouTube page. The more views and “LIKES” we get, the better our chances are to make it onto PBS.

Hope you enjoy the film:
