“Tech Support” – A Short Film by Director Gary Dunkel


***OFFICIAL SELECTION OF THE 2010 FORT LAUDERDALE INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL***

“Tech Support” is a short comedic film about a man who owns a home-based business and is forced to call one of those annoying tech support companies when his computer crashes!

The reason I wrote “Tech Support” was because I think it’s something everyone can relate to! We all at one point in our lives had to call a tech support company when our computer has crashed. We all know that when you call tech support companies a lot of the time it’s in a call center somehow in india where the person has no idea how to fix your computer. Instead they’re just reading troubleshooting tips on a computer screen. Anyone who has ever called a tech support company knows how frustrating it is to wait on hold for ever and than finally get that person who has no idea what they are talking about. This actually happened to me the day I decided to write this film. I had been on hold for about 2o minutes and finally got someone who didn’t know what he was talking about and my computer never got fixed. Basically I took my experience and exaggerated it just a bit to show the humor in it. I truly believe everyone can relate to this film and I hope you enjoy it!

Upcoming Projects!


2011 is starting to look pretty good with a few projects lined up and a few underway! I am directing a short film called “There Goes The Neighborhood” written by Jason Gallotti. Rehearsals are this coming Sunday and we will be shooting in about 2 -3 weeks! It’s another short comedy so it should be a lot of fun to shoot! I’m also shooting the “Like Me” Music Video for Stan Da Man in 2 weeks down in Fort Lauderdale, FL! This will be my first shoot using my Canon Rebel T2i to do HD Video and I’m very excited to test it out! After that I got 3 other short films lined up that Jason Gallotti has written! Also, I will be working on the second draft of my latest film that I wrote with my friend Jordan Wapner “:Prefer Not To Say” sometime in the next week! I believe we wrote a really fun screenplay and the second draft will only be that much better!

The Chicago Code


There’s a hot new show on TV! It has everything from action, drama, excitement, and a hint of comedy!The Chicago Code is an amazing show! The pilot aired on Monday February 7, 2011! This show is all about corruption in the Chicago Police Department. The whole background is that this lady witnessed corruption first hand as the mafia and other gangs forced her father’s store out of business as a little girl. She grew up knowing that she wanted to become a cop and make sure that she did everything she could to prevent that from happening in the future. Not only did she become a cop, she became the superintendent of the Chicago Police Department which is the most powerful cop! She does everything she can to take down the corrupt criminals. I don’t want to give away too much but this show is filled with excitement and it will certainly have you at the edge of your seat wondering what’s going to happen next! The Chicago Code airs Monday nights at 9pm on FOX!
