Short Film Festival Alum Jeffrey Wadlow's First Feature in Post-Production

Many Chlotrudis members will recall Jeffrey Wadlow's Chlotrudis Award-winning short film TOWER OF BABBLE. This inventive short, narrated by Kevin Spacey, took the top two prizes (Chlotrudis and Audience Awards) at the 2nd Annual Chlotrudis Short Film Festival in 2001. Wadlow went on to win the Chrysler Million Dollar Film Festival which awarded him a production/distribution deal to make a feature film with Universal Pictures.

As part of the Chrysler Million Dollar Film Festival, Wadlow produced a trailer for a thriller called CRY WOLF. The film, which stars relative unknowns such as Julian Morriss, Lindy Booth, and Jared Padalecki, alongside musician and sometime-indie film actor Jon Bon Jovi, is currently in post-production. CRY WOLF is a psychological thriller set in an exclusive prep school, based on the classic tale, The Boy Who Cried Wolf.

A much celebrated young writer, actor, and director, Wadlow's films have shown in festivals throughout the world. TOWER OF BABBLE, a short film which he wrote, directed, and acted in, won prizes at several festivals in addition to CSIF's. This inventive film featured three radically different storylines in different genres, each using the same dialogue.

While his win at the Chrysler Million Dollar Film Festival insured him a shot at big-time studio success, and thus makes his feature ineligible for Chlotrudis Award consideration, we will continue to keep an eye on this talented filmmaker's career.
