TRAILER for a new short filme, "ETHAN" now on IMDb

I just finished a trailer for my short filme, "ETHAN". Ethan is a little boy with a big problem. His father is the source of that problem. Ethan is wiser than his years and will bring that wisdom to bear in his attempted solution to the problem. See the short film, "Ethan" to see if father and son can reconcile their differences.

This was not a simple project. The short filme is only five minutes long which does not provide a lot of material without giving away the film. However, I think it came out good.

Many of the film festivals state in their rules that they are not interested in screen your filme if it was shown on the internet. So they only way to get any mileage out of a project until after it has gone the film festival circuit is to do a trailer. Please pass these links on so the film can get more exposure.

Thanks as a buzz and online consultant and a film marketing person I would suggest you really insisted on that great trailer.
Why don’t you submit it to a trailer competition.
Consider spending 25$ to submit to the International Movie Trailer Festival a competition specifically designed to promote trailers which could bring you huge visibility due to the way they screen online to millions viewers..
Post the trailer to your profile on
I will promote too, our audience is demanding and loves creativity.

About James W. Hawk - filmmaker

Hawk James W.
(HawkMedia Studios and HawkFilme)

James "Jim" W. Hawk was born on March 22, 1945 in New Eagle, Pennsylvania. He is of German, Irish, Scottish and Native American (Seneca) decent. At the age of three, he was moved to Cleveland, Ohio. In 1972, he pursued a career in industrial sales and marketing with a Fortune 500 company which resulted in he and his family being relocate to Rochester, New York, South Bend, Indiana and finally, New Haven, Connecticut.

Jim's first independent film project was a two hour and four part documentary called The Old School Roadster on a Budget featuring Larry, a local car guy who built a Roadster in his garage. It was aired on television stations throughout Connecticut. The next project was a commercial for Doritos. The winner of the contest would have their entry shown during the Super Bowl. He didn't win, but he made an outstanding creative work nonetheless. Having these under his belt, he needed the next greater challenge...he wanted to make a short narrative film.

Jim wrote, produced and directed Alpha to Omega: Part 4 with limited resources, but plenty of ingenuity. He wanted to keep it simple so he developed a story line and screenplay featuring the last man on Earth. After lots of work and some luck finding resources, it all came together as his first narrative short film.

Since that time, he has produced, written and directed several short films, documentaries, music filmes commercials and industrial presentations. He has also worked for the Connecticut Film Industry Training Program for two years as an Associate Producer and Director of the "behind the scenes" film of the program for four years. He has been interviewed on television regarding the making of one of his short films. He has had several minor acting parts in independent films. He has taken filmmaking classes at Quinnipiac University. He has had his films shown at film festivals, on local television and at other public venues.

He is always either planning, producing or searching for his next greater challenge.
