I GOT A CALLBACK played to rave reviews at the December 2018 COMEDY Feedback Film Festival in Los Angeles.
Matthew Toffolo: What motivated you to make this film?
Lester Greene: The whole Me Too movement sparked this film, especially the Terry Crews story of him being sexually assaulted by that high powered agent.
2. From the idea to the finished product, how long did it take for you to make this short?
It took about a week for the writer to put it together on paper, and then about a month to rehearse and then we begin filming a month after that.
3. How would you describe your short film in two words!?
4. What was the biggest obstacle you faced in completing this film?
We had to battle a car alarm going off non-stop during the film shoot. Luckily, the editor was able to remove it in post production.
5. What were your initial reactions when watching the audience talking about your film in the feedback video?
It was a proud moment. I felt like a true professional having his work reviewed and dissected. It was nice to see that many of the viewers understood our point of view. I create art so that people can gain something from it, and I can tell that your audience appreciated our film.

6. How did you come up with the idea for this short film?
We wanted to create something in the vein of the Me Too Movement with a slight twist.
7. What film have you seen the most in your life?
Above the Rim, Friday, Love & Basketball
8. What song have you listened to the most times in your life?
Dear Mama – by Tupac
9. What is next for you? A new film?
I just wrapped on two new films, “The Last Fishing Trip” and “33rd Road” both filmed by the same cinematographer who shot “I Got a Callback,” Chris Fox. And I’m getting ready to write a new comedy series.
