One of my favorite short films I’ve ever written was for Marc Boese’s Team Best Friends. It’s called The Other Half and it was made for the 2012 48 Go Green International Film Competition.
Some of its awards include: Go Green Top 45 Best Films, Top 15 Best Films, and Runner Up for 2012 Best Film in the world! It was screened at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in Beverly Hills, CA, April 19, 2013.
The story is a fantasy about Albert Smith who is looking for the young woman in a torn photo he found. Lark Green is trying to tell the world about how to save the environment. No one listens. She knows she must find the boy in a torn photo she’s found because he will help her save the earth. Will Albert and Lark find each other? In a world as messed as this one…maybe.
