A stay-at-home mom experiences an unexpected upheaval during her daily routine.
Jake Kolton is a filmmaker living and working in Brooklyn, NY. Hailing from the midlands of Indiana, Jake is a graduate of NYU Tisch School of the Arts where he studied Film and Art History. Following graduation, he cut his teeth writing coverage for Amazon Studios’ feature film department and worked with the commercial bidding team at Lance Acord’s production company, Park Pictures. MONSTER is his second short, and he is currently developing a micro film series that explores short narratives and cinematic gestures. When not making his own work, he can be found with the producing team at Neighborhood Watch, helping them make films, commercials, and branded content around the world.
The nine short films in the OPENING NITE screening of the Nitehawk Shorts Festival address the dynamics of family, shining in the face of adversity, and attempting to make meaningful connections. New York stories punctuate.
