Dead Drop

Filmed on a shoestring budget of only $97 with gorgeous San Diego as the backdrop, Lens-flare Films is proud to present…DEAD DROP. This short film features the dancing and acting talents of Carlos Barrionuevo and Mayte Valdes. Reunited with the same creative team behind the award-winning short “Niña Del Tango,” this latest film was the direct result of artistic boredom. But with an end product like “Dead Drop,” we hope boredom strikes more often!

“There are small-budget films, low-budget films and micro-budget films. Keep dropping lower to get to LA-by-way-of-Midwest filmmaker Jason Eberly’s Dead Drop. He claims to have spent just $97 to make the short film that, thanks to the beautiful San Diego backdrop and beautiful actor/dancers Carlos Barrionuevo and Mayte Valdes, looks like a million bucks. Ironically, the same creative team, right down to the actor/dancers, made the high-budget (and award-winning short) Niña Del Tango, which screened at April’s Newport Beach Film Festival.” – Matt Coker (OC Weekly)
