“Congratulations, Josh!” is my thesis film from the University of Southern California. It’s just over six minutes long and stars Hutch Dano (“Zombeavers,” “Zeke and Luther”). I directed this, but for a full list of credits please see our imdb. Here’s the summary:

A comedy short about a high school senior dealing with the fact that his girlfriend has been on house arrest for a month due to a prank gone wrong. This means that they haven’t had sex in a while. So one afternoon, just after he puts in his laundry, she calls and tells him that her parents just stepped out. He’s got on hour. Clock’s ticking. Wearing nothing but science fiction underpants, he takes off.

The movie has screened at the following festivals:

Temecula Valley International Film Festival (Temecula Valley)
Iron Mule Comedy Film Series (New York City)– Winner– Judge’s Award
Champs-Élysées Film Festival (Paris)
Laugh or Die Comedy Festival (Chicago)
