License To Steal Short Film

"Pull over, Jake." It's not often we ever see any films made in Cincinnati, Ohio, so why not give this a look. License to Steal an action short film that's barely 4 minutes long, just the right length to call it a "micro film". Directed by and shot by filmmaker Mat Grimes, who lives and works in Cincinnati, the film just won an award at the Nevada Short Film Festival Fall 2021. The short follows a thief on the run after a robbery, who encounters two characters on his getaway that make him question what his next move should be. The film stars Jake Kopronica, with John Mark James and Dylan DeSantos. There's not a lot of action in this short, but it's all about how much storytelling they can pull off in just a few minutes of time. Fire it up.
