11-Minute Mile

PRESENTED BY | KQED & Film School Shorts

ABOUT THE FILM

Stuck at the airport on a layover, cocky day-trader Sean can’t resist calling his buddy Pat to needle him about their impending bet: Sean wagers Pat won’t be able to average an 11-minute mile while running the Boston Marathon. As news starts to spread about the bombing at the marathon, Sean’s bravado turns to bargaining, especially when his calls to Pat continue to go to voicemail. Made at USC.

Andrew WoodABOUT THE FILMMAKER

Andrew Wood was born and raised on Cape Cod, Mass., the son of an elementary school art teacher and a shell fisherman. Growing up, Andrew’s time was divided between drawing and hockey, but after he discovered he wasn’t very good at hockey, art won out. Andrew got a degree in cinema studies and communication from Northeastern University and then enrolled in the School of Cinematic Arts Production at the University of Southern California
