PHOTO OP Tina Benko and Cheyenne Jackson as duelling paparazzi in PHOTO OP, a short film by Shawn Nacolis a short film directed by Shawn Nacol starring Tina Benko, Cheyenne Jackson, and Molly Ward in a story about red carpets, celebutarts, and the paps who snap them. Cowriter Emily Stone served up fresh intel from the tabloid trenches and also managed to negotiate the most dazzling location in the history of short film production. Then, under the guidance of producer Kenji Edmonds, an amazing team of film freshmen and veterans came together in one wild August weekend to bring the scandal-mongering lunacy of PHOTO OP to the screen.

On February 16th with the help of our friends at Tribeca, we had a closed sneak peek screening of the movie for the cast and crew. Responses in all quarters have been phenomenal and lots of juicy opportunities are brewing. The film festival submission process started soon after in Mid-February, so late spring we should have a sense of what's what. Keep an eye on this page for the latest news.
