Director Statement

Hello Programers,

With my international award-winning action/comedy short, "Think Twice", I wanted to take a classic scenario, combine it with two actors who make me laugh the most, add some heart, and tell it all through my voice.

With 35 film festival acceptances, from NY to LA, I'm excited to continue submitting [and, if accepted, traveling] to festivals around the world.

Thank you for your consideration,
Eliaz Rodriguez
