Rabbits

Featuring the music of Danny Elfman (Beetlejuice, The Simpsons, Pee Wee's Big Adventure), RABBITS was originally produced for the Los Angeles Film Festival and Indi.com. African-American adult twins Josh and Sheryl are at a crossroads. Their Daddy recently died, and they have met in a park to spread his ashes. It is also the day their relationship comes to a head, and there's no turning back. A film full of emotion, ultimately it's dad's memory that will always bond them.

Director Statement

I'm happy (or should I say, "HOPPY"?) to present our latest short film for you to enjoy, RABBITS. Being able to use an idol of mine's music, Danny Elfman, has inspired me to produce the best fantasy short that I could. Add to that the story of family, and the lifelong bond siblings have with each other, and we have come up with a film that means a lot to us. We hope it moves you as well. Thanks for considering RABBITS for your festival, we're honored that it is in consideration.
