All About The New Film
The short film is about two friends who take a look back at their journey in Los Angeles one last time as they part ways. In the film, Kenny (played by Christopher Collins) and Reid (Played by Christian Henley) both moved to Los Angeles to pursue acting careers, meeting in class and becoming friends in the process. Reid eventually found success, while Kenny still struggles with booking jobs. While helping Kenny read an audition, Reid reveals he has decided to quit acting and move back to his hometown of Oakland.
But during the conversation, they’re interrupted by Kenny’s boisterous roommate Zack, who rambles about his vacation plans in the middle of the pandemic, much to their chagrin. After he finally exits, Reid reveals that the pandemic changed his entire outlook and that he figures there’s more to life than acting.
Christopher Collins who wrote and starred in the film met Remington and Forrest Hoffman in an acting class, spawning a friendship over the ability to carpool to Burbank from the west side of LA. Barklund is playing the role of Andrea in the film. Fans can also watch Hoffman in the Zatima series playing the role of Bryce. Congratulations to Hoffman and his wife.
