    I just submitted my comedy short film, "The Don Of West Hollywood" to the fabulous "Independent Shorts Awards". I play 7 characters in it. According to my shrink, I have "Multiple Personality Disorder". But we vehemently disagree! We think she's keeping us in therapy until her Mercedes is paid for.
    Thank you Independent Shorts Awards! 🌟 My film 116 an Official Selection! 🌟 Congrats Team 116! 🌟 Thank you to all our supporters! 🌟 Take a look at the 116 trailer - - Nick Atkinson Lauretta Prevost Dina Alexander Sean Lessard Julia Haltigan
