CARGO – Tearing Up 2013

Some friends and I are a part of a filmmaking collective called Dreaming Tree Productions, and our first venture together was a short film called Cargo.  The short film was made for 2013’s Tropfest Short Film Festival, but since screening there, it has gone on to do big things.

After being released online, the film has already racked up over 3.5 million views on YouTube alone, and counting.  It has received fantastic feedback from the likes of Short Of The Week,,, as well as being picked up by and other premier websites.

Cargo has also gone on to be accepted into and screened at several more festivals, such as:

  1. Your film is absolutely amazing. I’ve watched it three or four times and every time I see a new detail I missed before. Thank you for making it.

  2. Dude, what do you need to make this into a full length film! I’ll gladly donate two dollars… j/k great work guys. Writing a post on your movie will be live on the site tomorrow.
