The Long Beach Q Festival has accepted the short film based on my experiences for exhibition! I haven’t been this excited since my egress from the custodial arts. See the exhibition time under “Laugh Your Shorts Off” [...]
As you may know, a short film based on my early experiences as a clerk was produced a few earth months ago. Apparently, the living have found my story quite engaging.
