AUSTIN FILM FEST FINALIST
Second Rounder Austin holds a special place in my heart because it's my first ever contest advancement back in 2014 with both my TV show pilot Overdue and spec for Workaholics. I can attest how hard this achievement is because I haven't made it with any other projects in-between! Too busy working for hire to worry about contest rejection but I am so excited to announce Piece Of Shit Time Travelers advanced to the second round.
