    I can't believe it, my film "Sold" was chosen as a semi-finalist out of over 15,000 submissions for Ridley Scott's "Your Film Festival"! http://www.voteforsold.com

    If my film 'Sold' is voted by the public into the top 10, I'll be flown to Venice, Italy to open the Venice International Film Festival with my film! Even more amazing, if 'Sold' wins, Scott Free Productions will award a $500,000 grant for me to make my dream movie with Ridley Scott! Please help my dreams come true and vote!

    Sold is about a young journalist who is inadvertently captured into a human trafficking ring while investigating the treatment of undocumented immigrants in America.

    This competition is another fascinating look at how Scott Free productions has been able to use Youtube to gain more exposure for filmmakers (the first being that Life in a Day documentary).

    The above link will take someone directly to the film where they can click the red "VOTE" button to the right. Voting ends on July 13th and people are allowed to vote once a day. If you like the film, please help! I can't even imagine how cool it would be to go to Venice Film Festival and open the fest with my short! If you like the film, please vote!

    Quite an imaginative short film.....the ending leaves room for a follow up.

    How d you turn off the sub-titles (...grunt...tyres screeching..etc)?

    Where do you fit in.....I couldn't see your name in any of the credits?

    Good work..definately deserved a vote..
    nice work with the 1st scene itself..loved it..the angle..everything

    Thanks guys, really appreciate it!
    Rogerfry, sorry -- I just realized this is the wrong username I posted this on. My name is John Irwin, I'm the writer/director/editor.
    Those subtitles are annoying, they come on automatically. There's a button in the bottom right of the youtube video "CC" for closed captions that you can click on and turn off.
    I made the short to act as sort of a demo for the feature version so I'm hoping the ending leaves room for people to want more from the story.

    Thanks Shreel! That first angle...might have drawn inspiration from just having seen inception Wink
    Also, I used Topaz Adjust for that first shot. Have you guys used that at all for photos?

    Below are some behind-the-scenes photos. The biggest challenge was figuring out how to do the trunk scenes. Last minute we found the back half of a taxi cab on rollers that had a hole in the axle and a remove-able side. So helpful! It also didn't hurt to be using the 5D in such a small space. Smile
