Last April, we were in the process of finding a short film to produce as part of our Collective Film Project. CFP co-founder, Grant Peele, knew of someone who would be interested in being a part of it. Enter Zach Daulton. You may know him better as the director of our Cleveland 48 Hour Film Project, The Hatch. Zach has filmed for clients such as SYFY, Adidas, and country superstar Luke Bryan. Notably, his short film, Mayfield, has been selected in numerous film festivals around the country. Over a year later, Lost In Static is released. Here are some fun facts about the film:

-The short was filmed in two days in Wilmington, OH

-Zach wrote the script, conducted casting, and found locations ten days before the start of production

-The cat in the first minute of the film was not planned to be in the scene, but it worked out anyway.

-Zach makes an appearance in the film, but to find out, you have to watch first!
