This film was the First Runner-Up (Second Place Overall) at the Fantastic Planet Film Festival in Sydney, Australia.

Author Bio: I'm from Indianapolis, I was a theater and speech team jock in high school. I got a film degree from Northwestern, then I moved to San Francisco to become a rock star. I had pretty fun run, played the Fillmore a couple of times, opened a few shows for Bowie. • I started naming things for a living ( www.Gunnion.com ), and then moved up into the wine country of Sonoma County. After a successful 20-year career in branding and naming products and companies for clients around the world, I've been writing screenplays for the last few years. • I currently have four complete original spec screenplays that I'd love to get into development - or use as writing samples. Please drop me a line at markgunnion@gmail.com if you'd like to read one.
