EZ Out (2015) is a short romantic comedy with a dark twist. Jim decides to take the new EZ Out suicide pill that will kill him in exactly 24 hours. Shortly after, he meets Charlotte, the girl worth living for.
Written, produced, and directed by Jacob Toarmina, the film was shot in Fall of 2014. The funds to cover the costs of both production and film festival entry fees were raised on Kickstarter.
It became an award-winning film in its festival debut at the CIMMfest Student Competition (Audience Choice Award), and has since been accepted into 9 other festivals, earning another win for Best Editing at the Laugh or Die Comedy Fest. Other official selections include:
- Austin Revolution Film Festival
