The Stones We Throw (2013)
Brett (Deke Garner) is guarded by his small town upbringing and overbearing mother (Meggie Maddock). Though misunderstood by his father (Matt Block) and bullied by his peers, he remains untarnished until he forges a friendship with his new neighbor, Charlie (Andrew Katers). This friendship introduces him to the power of his own fists as he learns a lesson that will alter the course of his life.
This was the first short film written, directed, and produced by Olivia J Carmel. She also self-financed the short film, which was intended to be a concept piece for a feature film in development. This was also her third collaboration with Director of Photography, Eric Branco.
