    Press:
    "Mr Roussel is a VERY gifted writer and director, the performances here are elevated by his skill at his craft, and at 20 minutes; REMOTE wraps itself up in perhaps the neatest, most satisfying bow any fan of the short genre film could ever hope for." The Conduit The Conduit Speaks.com

    "Short films generally need a good hook, and Remote has one...Director Marc Roussel exhibits a certain amount of style in the execution of Remote and manages to keep us guessing as to what is going on." Rue Morgue Magazine

    "Why is it so good? Because Roussel was smart enough to focus on the writing. The story of Remote is tight. It takes a high concept involving a time-paradox and plays it out to its full, horrific potential. It has as much suspense, scares and twists as a feature length film so; in short, I'd say it's the whole package." Quiet Earth

    "Remote is a really intense and original short. I'd love to see this story get the feature length treatment." Planet of Terror

    "Remote is a tense thriller that has one completely invested in how it will turn out for the characters." All Things Horror

    Starring Ron Basch, Sarah Silverthorne, George Komorowski, Peter Racanelli and Julie McCarthy

  2. a Red Sneakers Media and Film PaniK production

    Written & Directed by: Mark Sanders and Marc Roussel

    Story by: Marc Roussel, Mark Sanders and Mark Thibodeau

    Produced by: Ron Basch, Marc Roussel and Mark Sanders

    Synopsis: What do an industrial chain manufacturer, a gold digging wife and international art thieves have in common….. Absolutely nothing! So how did all these strange people end up in the same factory with guns, knives and severed body parts?

    Blaine Sutherland is a wealthy man; an industrial chain manufacturer living in the lap of luxury. Being filthy rich isn't one of the Seven Deadly Sins... but that hasn't kept Blaine from having a target painted on his back... and - thanks to his gold-digging wife and her boy-toy, Lance - his wallet.

    Blaine's life turns upside-down in an instant when what seems like an ordinary day turns into a life-and-death confrontation with a ruthless band of international art thieves who invade his office, chop off one of his ears and demand that he divulge the whereabouts of a certain "Elusive Man".

    Of course, Blaine has no idea what his tormentors are talking about. All he wants is his ear back! Who can he count on for help? The art thieves talk in riddles, and all his wife wants is as much filthy lucre as she can get her hot little hands on. And still, the question remains:

    Who is the Elusive Man?

    ********************

    "As you sow, so you reap." This ambitious, bloody and darkly comic revenge fantasy from the award winning directing team of Mark Sanders (Boyfriend Latte, Split City) and Marc Roussel (Remote, Sweet Tooth) is an ever-expanding spiral of violence, betrayal and lies. Roussel and Sanders have once again joined forces with producer Ron Basch (Remote, Cellar) to create a film without good guys... only intriguing characters that get what they deserve and deserve everything they get!

    Music by: Norman Orenstein
    Production Designer: Katelyn Di Giulio
