Pardon My Condolences

Written & Directed By Eric Alan Luse

About The Film:

Pardon My Condolences is a story about a man in his late 20’s named Benji who hasn’t quite figured out his place in the world. He enjoys entertaining people through the medium of podcasts but has trouble connecting with people inter-personally. Benji’s world is shaken when he is given the news that his ex-girlfriend from college has died in a brutal car wreck. Still torn by how poorly they ended their relationship and disrupted by her sudden death, Benji is at odds with himself as to whether to attend the funeral.

Why We Need Your Support:

Film is a collaborative art form that requires camera equipment, sound equipment, lighting, costumes, props and so much more - not to mention the helping hand of a trusted cast and crew. All of these elements cost money and with your aide, this story can be told. This short film is an expression of how hard it is to grieve and how we prepare ourselves for inevitable events. This film is for everyone and anyone who had dealt with deep loss. Please consider helping out.
