Acid Test

A Short Film

ABOUT THE FILM

Tom Solomon is a dedicated academic. Tough but fair.  Shrewd yet patient. He is the cooler head. A firm believer in American institutions and the education system, he is committed to making the best of a bad situation. So when one of his students accuses another of cheating on the mid-term RTTI, an exam designed to measure "hardship", his skills as an administrator are put to the test.

EQUIVALENCE

Originally written as a short story, 'Acid Test' began with a singular and overriding question at its heart:

“How does one measure suffering?”

Assuming anything like that could be quantified objectively, the “what-if” at the heart of our film is at once serious and absurd, its implications ominous and ridiculous.

HELPING HANDS

A few bucks seems paltry but it might make all the difference.

It could mean rental and permit fees, insurance premiums, gas money, craft services, wardrobe, locations, talent, technicians, special effects, sound design and marketing. If we run over schedule, those little contributions might make or break that extra day.

We can't anticipate every one of our needs when the cameras start rolling but with your help we might not have to.
