Checking Out | Short Film


A woman tries to save her father from a dreary nursing home and an overbearing step-mother

Written, casted, filmed, and edited in less than 72 hours, this film was a practice in re-thinking how to tell a heist story while remaining funny, engaging, and heartwarming. “Checking Out” received the Mentors Award at the 2015 Adrenaline Film Project at the Virginia Film Festival.
