PINBALL DONUT GIRL Likes SPF (of course!)

PINBALL DONUT GIRL plugged the Southern Pinball Festival, so we thought we’d plug her (them? it?) back! From the website about this short film being made…

“Remember playing pinball in your neighborhood bar, cafe, or even laundromat? Pinball is art and technology united for fun, and Pinball Donut Girl is a fun comedy about Matt and Julie, who meet in a donut shop that still has a pinball machine.
Matt’s never known a girl like Julie; she’s a pinball genius in a vintage dress. He’s just a fraternity pledge trying to escape his rural roots. Can Matt win Julie’s love when he doesn’t have a decent skill shot? Will Julie’s dreams of winning a pinball tournament come true? Do apple fritters have way too many calories??”

The film stars Starring Jane Weidlin (The Gogo’s, Star Trek), Bailey Hopkins (All About Evil),
and Brian J Patterson (Batman: Battle for the Cowl).
