Trailer for FIVE MINUTE RUSH, initially shot as a pitch piece. After a very successful festival run, the film went on to earn several nominations, wining several awards. Actor/Writer/Director- Steve Baran went on to further develop the project. Exploring all avenues, he wrote the feature screenplay, as well as a pilot for a TV series adaptation. After completing both a feature film proposal, and show bible, the project is finally pitch perfect. What evolved from the 31 minute short film, is a now a hardcore action/crime/thriller that interweaves several storylines examining the government agencies that regulate the country, and the powerful criminals that run the illegal drug trade. The story and action sequences, backed by raw intelligent performances, will take the audience on a hard hitting, action packed, nail-biting adrenaline ride.
