The Car Wash: a short film

Checkout my new film "The Car Wash." I'd love your thoughts; best wishes and good luck in the New Year!

An elderly woman (Edith Ivey, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) visits the local Car Wash and Lube to connect with the world closing in around her.

Starring Edith Ivey, John C. Arnold, Kelley Callaway, and Greg Purcell. The Car Wash is written, directed, and produced by James Kicklighter (Theater of the Mind, Di Passaggio).

Re: The Car Wash: a short film

Good dialogue. But overall, quite dull. Whichever format you shot on didn't seem too impressive, and I don't think the lead actor conveyed the sympathetic dialogue he was saying too well. He just didn't feel right in the film. Someone else should have had his role.

Re: The Car Wash: a short film

Thanks for your feedback! It was shot on standard HD for less than $1000. If there had been more money, we might have done it a different way.

Happy New Year!
