MONMOUTH JUNCTION, NJ
An absurdly good looking student sues his school board for wrongfully denied disability benefits. Adoniasis-Extreme Sexiness.
DIRECTOR BIO: MIKE FELDMAN is a high school senior and has a note to prospective high school filmmakers: "This movie was made on an $1100 camera, a $100 microphone, and a $100 tripod. It was edited on a student version of Final Cut Pro, costing $300. Though it would have been more difficult, I could have made this entire movie for even less money, using all equipment on loan from the school. What this should show you is that making a movie is absolutely possible, and if you want to do it, do it. The parts of moviemaking that are difficult, that are important, that you need to learn, you can lean and do well without any fancy equipment. Good audio and sound quality, and high-quality video__these are relatively unimportant compared to good pace and rhythm, to good storytellings. Good storytelling costs nothing. Go do it."
