LA Feedback Film Festival Testimonial – May 15 2020

Daniel Blake Smith

LA Feedback Film & Screenplay Festival offers a truly unique and terrific experience for filmmakers: an opportunity to get real, thoughtful audience reaction to your film–and recorded and posted on video! I loved what I saw and heard from the audience reaction (with guidance from a pertinent and helpful moderator) to my short, MEMORY BOX. Sure wish I could have been there–Matthew Toffolo generously offered extra seats for festival filmmakers like myself; I just couldn’t make the trip from St. Louis to LA at the time of the screening. I would encourage all filmmakers to submit to Feedback. It’s a very special and valuable fest on the circuit–not to be missed!

Director Biography – Jay Mohan (I RESIGN)

75e8bc9d8e headshot

Jay Mohan is a filmmaker based out of Dallas, Texas. As a new comer to the Dallas movie making arena, he started making films only from 2018. Within a short span of time he has made three short films covering multiple aspects of human life that has received worldwide recognition. As a computer engineer and software business owner by profession, he started down the path of filmmaking due to sheer passion. His enthusiasm to create stories covering wide variety of human emotions while his characters are faced with common diabolical yet heart wrenching hurdles make him stand out. As a story writer, director and cinematographer, he dreams of painting frames that will touch human emotions.

Director Statement

“I Resign” is a story that was inspired by a conversation of an engineer friend of mine, who had to jump jobs due to discrimination. There was no solution for the mental agony he faced at that time, which I felt warranted that the world should know. The question that I wanted to explore – “What if this happened to a naive, introvert”? This is the exploration of a human mind that has seldom been explored.
