WHAt's it about?

It was a blistering hot day, and, as a chubby kid on summer break, Bruno's only goals were to avoid his chores and stay cool while awaiting the sweet jingle of the ice cream truck. After emerging victorious in his quest for frozen delights, things didn't go as planned, and the sugar high only lasted so long. Whether it was the heat, the sugar crash or serendipity, he won't ever know, but what happened next turned that day into one he could never forget.

Turtle Crew Photo TURTLE would not have been possible without the support, dedication, and incredible work ethic of the amazingly talented and diverse Los Angeles-based crew.  With many people taking on multiple roles in the hot LA sun, the three shooting days were not easy; however, everyone banded together as a team to complete the film.

The film was produced by Meghan Weinstein and Matt Kenchington, the Director of Photography was Yoni Shrira, the Production Designer was Joie Horwitz, and Cameron Dexter was the First Assistant Director.

Other on-set crew members included Joe Han, Adam Katzner, and Ian Friedman as Camera Assistants, Ignacio Genzon as the Gaffer, Key Grip Bergen Johnson, Best Boy Jesse Carlson, T.J Yoshizaki and Lellan Thomas on Production Sound, and Jessica Solomon who did hair, makeup, catering, and, like a boss, drove the ice cream truck.

Post-production crew members included Evan Sorlien as the Editor, Composer Andrew Synowiec, Sound Designer and Mixer Thomas Yount, Color Producer Brandon Don Heath from Chromacolor, Colorist Steffanie J Walk, Visual Effects by Scott Ash, and Art Designer Dylan Polniak.
