Experiencing Interruptions?

The Retailer

Discovering his daily life is consumed by mentally draining obstacles, Jack Humanick decides to seek help from a renowned psychiatrist, Dr. Patricia Kreidel.

Patricia becomes an immediate sympathizer to Jack’s everyday drama- the out of touch boss who Jack despises, the encounters with a cocky coworker gunning for Jack’s job, and an ill mother who's high expectations add to his already heightened stress level. All of this compiles with the always intolerable customers he must satisfy to keep the store numbers high, and his job intact.

After uncovering Jack’s problems in her first session with him, Dr. Kreidel begins to realize the picture Jack is painting for her may not be as abstract as initially thought, but more so a symbol of realism.

Director Statement

I’ve had a passion for telling stories through the lens of a camera since I was in middle school. Over the years I’ve been fortunate to build some amazing friendships with people who have a mutual desire to create films and various content.

The most important aspect of choosing the right people to be a part of your production is someone who has a great attitude. You can’t teach how to have a great attitude. It’s a choice you choose to make everyday. Taking a positive approach in anything you do will always produce your best results.

The best advice I can give anyone who wants to make a film is to commit to finishing your project no matter what. You may not have the best equipment, or a lot of money, but you have creativity and drive. Some of the most raw talented people you meet may have that one flaw…they don’t finish. It’s important to finish what you start. It’s a commitment to yourself, and to the ones who are traveling on the journey with you.

The most invaluable thing you can own as a filmmaker is a finished film. No one can ever take that away from you. Your art is priceless, and should be celebrated as an accomplishment after your production has finished and you finally say “That’s a wrap”!
