"The film takes place on a world where there is no longer any life - just an endless sea of graves - and a personification of Death has grown terribly bored without any more life to take. When she (yes, Death is a "she" in the film's world) meets a hapless steam-powered Robot who has been secretly sustaining an underground greenhouse for centuries, an unlikely friendship emerges between them - but at a severe cost..." - Alex Thompson

Working with Josh and Kenny is unexplainable. They are the most understanding people. Being able to see the passion/love that they have for filmmaking in person is absolutely amazing. They are willing to cut loose and have fun when needed but they also know when it's time to be serious. They are willing to work with you and do whatever makes you comfortable. They are two of the most amazing people I have ever met. For me it was kind of challenging at first I wasn't able to channel my inner Jackie, because she was a complete opposite person of who I really am but I ended up getting used to it. - Mariah Brown - Jackie Blue in Honeyspider
"It was so much fun having a part in bringing such a complex and intriguing character to life. Robert is always such a professional and a pleasure to work with." - Mahri Shelton - Actor

To learn more about Joshua read our article about him here:
Joshua Sheik began writing stories at a young age and by the time that he was 10 he had directed his first play/movie called Murder on Saratoga Street which he followed up with six sequels.
After graduating high school, he attended West Point military school . From there he was commissioned as an Army Aviation Officer, became a rated helicopter pilot, was deployed twice to Iraq, and made films for his troops. During this time, he learned about being responsible for others and leadership skills. Which he says, is "one of the most important pillars of being a director." He feels that "the greatest directors are not only artists, but they are also grounded leaders".
To produce Big co-directors Kira Bursky and Wayne Culpepper have gone small. Using only themselves as both cast and crew they have created a dark comedy musical for the Charlotte 48 Hour Film Project. The film will be shown this Thursday at the McGlohon Theater in Charlotte, NC.
I don't quite know what this is going to be about but it appears from the trailer that a fellow who want's to make it big is going to get some help from his tiny companion. Kira is leaving me to wonder until the film has been released.
This began as project when they entered the 48 Hour Film Project in Charlotte and drew the category "Dark Comedy". As if dark and comedy with a two person team wasn't enough they decided to make it a musical dark comedy. Why not? Everyone likes a challenge right?
