After premiering “Good Samaritans” at Film Fest 919 in October, the Lawler Brothers’ debut short film is now available for the world to see.
Vintelnus Productions released the short on its YouTube channel and across its social media platforms on Saturday. Check it out below!
Jake Lawler, co-founder of Inside The Film Room, and his brother Conor Lawler, a film student at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, co-wrote, produced and starred in the short film, which follows two men from different walks of life who debate the homeless crisis in America before heading off to work. The short is directed by Nick Stathopoulos, founder of Vintelnus Productions.
“We’re incredibly excited to be able to share our film with you all,” Jake Lawler said Saturday. “It’s been a long journey and after the success at Film Fest 919, we only became more grateful for the opportunity to show more people. We hope you all enjoy it!”
