"But it's really about movies," Hartwell continues, "about movie fans and about living your life in the present, the way it is, or being wrapped up too much in fantasy."
Directed by Jim Hunt and starring Rhonda Lee Brown, Jeremy Make, Westworder Stephen J. Burge, Matt Mueller, Paul Page and Jamie Ann Romero, Contrived Ending features a cast and crew that's "just first-choice," according to Hartwell. "It's been so easy to watch, so amazing to watch. I frequently forget that I wrote it because of what a great job these people are doing with my words."
