Director Statement

At Milepost 42 Films we strive to produce high quality, high concept films while being a positive and supportive force for filmmakers, writers, actors, and other creatives who share our love of human connection (and quirky humor)!

We wrote Clown Car for a smaller cast, a few contained locations, and with fierce determination and grit. It's also got this quirky, dark humor, laugh-so-you-don't-cry thing going for it.

Some excerpts from our coverage feedback:

" Clown Car: A Love Story makes effective use of its confined setting, layering a distinct sense of humor alongside...surprisingly poignant moments.”

“Pocket and Jiggles are consistently fun characters to follow, each garnering a great deal of empathy as well as proving obstacles to themselves and one another."

"A nicely paced script with...genuinely great comedy.”

“The Venn diagram of comedy and pathos is a perfect overlap."

We hope you enjoy this labor of love by all of us. Thank you for checking it out!
