If you did not get a chance to make it to the Orlando Film Festival in Downtown Orlando near the end of October – we have a special treat for you. One of the films that screened during the festival was directed by Full Sail graduate and Emmy winner Jeff Pinilla, and is now available to the public on the video platform Vimeo.
Pinilla, who has had his work appear on Current TV & HBO – is currently based out of New York City with a production company that has done work for Gucci, Nikon, Vogue & Verizon. The Earth, the way I left it – won Best Narrative Short Film at the Woodstock International Film Festival earlier this year.
It was easily one of the best films at the Orlando Film Festival. It explored the effect that a death in the family, especially a loss of a sibling can have on young child. We highly recommend you dedicate 15 minutes of your day to this wonderfully shot and crafted film, it’s well worth it.
