Private Project

Procedural Justice

Crime in Murderburg is out of control and there's only one cop who can clean it up. Unfortunately, he's on vacation in the Poconos, so Murderburg will have to settle for the next best thing. Unfortunately, the next best thing has been suspended for gross misconduct. They'll have to settle for Detective Ace Pallagrello's unique brand of Procedural Justice.

Director Biography - Josh Callahan

Director Statement

Seriously. We never thought we would get this far. "Can we write, direct, produce, edit and publish a high quality genre short on a micro-microbudget? Can we send up the action movie genre tropes we grew up loving by blending silly sight gags with sharp writing? Do you think anybody would want to watch that?"

And after the person at the Wendy's drive-through window told us they didn't have the answers to those questions, we decided to find out for ourselves. The result is Procedural Justice. A silly, quirky piece that quickly became an avenue for us to wear dozens of different hats throughout the process, involve a diverse group of fantastic comedic actors and assemble a small crew who were truly dedicated to making this project a success. If anybody is the story, it's them, not us.

We're thrilled that you're reading this. We're thrilled that you have or are going to watch our show.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.
