The films, filming back to back have brought together a cast and crew of both recognized local actors and newcomers.  Alien Communications lead actress Evangeline Young (17) has appeared as a recurring guest star on CBS's The Good Wife.  Newcomers Luke Baxter (16) and Olivia Dalessandro (17) round out the casts.  Renowned production designer Nicholas Van Strander created the alien probe droid that will be used in one of the films.

Alien Communications is a coming of age comedy about two teenagers with unrequited feelings for each other investigating an alien machine that has crashed to Earth. As the awkwardness between the two escalates the machine starts to investigate on its own to figure out the unknown emotion that they are demonstrating.

GUMBALL follows one night in the life of a rebellious young woman who breaks into a diner after hours with a can of spray paint.  Her intentions change after she ends up discovering what's left of a love story. 

The young directors hope to replicate or surpass the success of their last short film Retreat which screened at film festivals around the world this year including their most recent showing this weekend at the famous Grauman's Chinese Theater in Hollywood.
