It was a real joy to work on this short trailer for the book How to Escape an Arranged Marriage in High Heels. I couldn't have made this film without the great artwork and animation of Gretchen Piper, Atinuke Kemi Oyebade, Christine Allwine and Charles Coyne, and finally, the superb music of Anders Morlin ("Adventures in India") and Stefan Netsman ("Prince Brown Funk"). Enjoy the film!
