Production Description

Casting "Tin," a student film. Synopsis: On the drive upstate to meet his sister to spread their fathers’ ashes, Jack is confronted with the memory of his father on the seat next to him. Having been left in the dark about his fathers’ sickness, he's both lost and angry. As the trip progresses, tension builds between he and his father until the inevitable breaking point.

Personnel states: "Inspired by the loss of my own father in the summer of 2012, I wanted to explore the conflict within a father son relationship, when the parent makes a conscious decision to withhold information as serious as their own terminal illness. When the stakes are as high as they are for the character of 'Jack', loosing his trainer, mentor, father and best friend at a pivotal time in his life becomes unbearable."
