In this black-and-white silent short film, young Rodney Smith receives a letter one day from his university, revealing that he is on academic probation for flunking a class. In an effort to prevent the news from spreading to his parents, he tries to get rid of it, only for it to mysteriously reappear undamaged. What will Rodney do to get rid of this burdensome letter?
Couple of notes:

-Photographed with a Canon ZR800, edited with Final Cut Express HD, and scored with Garage Band.
-Created for an art show done by a group I'm involved with, Mosaic. The "hero" letter featured in the film was sold at the art show for $4.00, proceeds benefiting Compassion International.
