From the award-winning filmmaking team of “That’s Opportunity Knocking” comes a new screwbyte comedy:
Written and directed by Charles Pelletier. Produced by Stephen Foster.
When all that’s good about middle-class workers meets all that’s bad about corporate millionaires and all that’s wrong with technology, the inevitable result is a hysterical new comedy short that slashes the tires of corporate America.
A comedy short where road movies collides with screwball comedy. A madcap satire that pokes fun at all modern age Oligarchies where the rich get richer and the poor get run over by corporate greed and billionaires. Or do they?Glen Hanson (C. Stephen Foster) lands a job through nepotism at his uncle’s driverless car company “Oleg” (OUR CARS DRIVE THEMSELVES!) which is under the umbrella of a mega-rich company Oligarchy, Inc.
“You handle the customers, Raj handles the computers and I handle…?”
Raj the IT guy, making minimum wage after his salary has been cut by Miles, runs the driverless cars through an archaic computer system where he controls the cars. Glen is none to happy about returning to the inside belly of the corporate dinosuar, but makes the best of it. He has been fired from his last 3 jobs for anger issues. Miles believes those skills might come in handy.
Meanwhile, 2 sets of cars are set into motion: 2 corporate Dbags: Johnny (Donald Burns) & Alex (Daniel Luna), are headed to a power conference while Woodrow, a quaker, tries to sweet talk Randy, a redneck, into joining his church. Things are rolling along nicely until…
Things heat up when Glen gets his first phone call from a corporate suit Joanne (Renee Laramore) who is super annoyed her car was NOT on time, in fact, 35 minutes late. She is frustrated by the phone tree and incompetence of Glen who is experiencing Dante’s inferno with no job training except a truncated tutorial from Raj.
Of course, Miles is MILES AWAY networking with the powers that be Darren (Steven Morana), jetsetting to the Boston shareholders meeting and ignoring Glen & Raj’s repeated calls.
Glen and Raj are two rats caught in the maze of trying to appease and glad-hand Joanne who taunts & threatens them with name-calling and posturing. “I will have you fired!” Not only has someone moved the cheese, but they have eaten it.
