Film Class 112: "Two Men and a Robot" Short Film

Laughing has never come so easy.  Class 112 gives birth to a potential web series titled 
Two Men and Robot”, starring Jason Smolowitz as Ben, the goof ball always getting in trouble;  David Lopez stars as John, the conservative who always gets sucked into Ben’s schemes; and Michael Mendez as the mysterious Simon. 
The first episode introduces the characters as roommates living together in an apartment.  A package is delivered and instead of being received by Simon, nosy Ben gets his hands on it resulting in their world turned up side down and death being a certain factor.  

Written and directed by Stoney Swaze and David Lopez, it delivers tear-jerking humor that can be received by all audiences.  Andrew Ruben and Michael Mendez tackle the audio and Anthony Arriaga as the camera man.  

The team is currently in the writing room coming up with ideas that will surpass the pilot episode in content.  As always, F.I.R.S.T. lends its facilities to the students allowing them to turn their imagination into works of art.

Would you like to create short films? Contact F.I.R.S.T. today and get started tomorrow!
