The story: a desperate Jon who's trying to save his mom gets pulled over by a cop for speeding too hard. Obnoxious but super-cool cop is just about to let him go, when a loud noise comes from the trunk. Cop is suspicious. Jon is confucious. and mom...is unconscious.

I came up with the story one night, jotted down the main ideas, and refined it over the next few weeks. The scope was originally bigger (shooting more than one location, renting police car and ambulance, more actors), but due to budgetary and time constraints, I trimmed down the screenplay to the core of the story. I held an audition and was fortunate to get Scott Mathison, David Sanchez, Rachael Adams, and Xueqiong Qu on board to act for this short. I then assembled a crew from a talented pool of students in a filmmaking school. We did the shoot and I edited it (extensive ADR was involved), and this is the resulting product.
