My good friends Russell Costanzo and Melissa Miller have recently taken home the top prize at the 10th Annual Los Angeles Short Film Festival. Their film, The Tested beat out 650 other films for this prize and is now eligible for an Academy Award nomination.
Last I heard, their production company Shoebox Pictures was putting together funding for a feature with one of my favorite actors attached. After this, they'll probably cruise right into shooting. This is such cool news, congratulations Mel and Russ!
