Hello! My name is John Porter and I am submitting my most successful short film that I have yet to make. It stars myself, and my close friend Elizabeth Iliff. It is a sequel to a book we read in English class and was truly comical and moving for our classmates, as well as our teacher. I hope you enjoy this wonderful tale of cute animal adventure!
