A coming-of-age comedy enhanced by a bit of stop motion animation. Amidst mounting parental pressure to find a real job, college filmmaker Keller has one week to secretly produce a short film with his brother and longtime crush. When their shoot goes wrong, they confront each other about much more than production issues. Faced with his own selfishness, Keller must decide which is more important, his filmmaking or close relationships.
Supported by friends and family, Hunter has won over 40 awards for the 20+ short films he has written, directed, edited, and scored, including a first place award at the United Nations for his anti-bullying short film, ‘Numbskull.’
Now, Hunter is a Video Producer at The Walt Disney Company and just wrapped writing and directing his debut feature film, ‘Shellfish.’ Looking ahead, Hunter plans to give back through filmmaking and Rock*Comedy*Film Festivals benefiting arts education programs.
