Our Featured Film this year:


A Film by Wesley Gunn

An award-winning, black/white, silent short film that details the madcap pursuit of a mythical creature by villagers seeking to retrieve a kidnapped infant.


About the Director:

Wesley Gunn grew up in Maryland and Florida, and his interest in the dramatic arts began when he bespied the enormous backdrop for his elementary school's annual play. Since then, he has designed, constructed, and painted backdrops, sets, and scenery; and has directed and performed on stage.


More recently, he has been a lead scenic artist and sometimes sculptor on several large theme park projects including “The Wizarding World of Harry Potter” at Universal Studios Orlando, and “Transformers: The Ride 3D”, “Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem”, “Fast and Furious: Supercharged”, and portions of “The Wizarding World of Harry Potter” at Universal Studios Hollywood. He has also worked on many commercials, short films, web series, and fine art projects as a scenic artist and sculptor. Currently he is working as an art director on the world’s first 20th Century Fox World in Malaysia.


Yotlungerdal is the first film that Wesley Gunn has written, directed, designed, and produced.
