Episode 8 – ‘That’s a Wrap’

Two weeks from now, ‘1/30’ goes live to the world. Here’s a roundtable that got the class back together to introduce you all to the trailers for each of the short films. Part of a special group, have a special mentor, in a special moment. Enjoy!

Episode 7 – ‘Postmarked’

Episode 7 of the behind the scenes making of the AT&T shorts takes you to the set of ‘Postmarked’. Angela wrote a beautiful story and Malakai is a committed director and if you watch film and television at all you’ll probably recognize an actor or two who appear in this short. Enjoy!
