Summer Delivers An Emotional Performance on Short Drama 'Dead End'

Summer Glau is a versatile artist. How else can you describe an actress who can cross seamlessly acrosss a recurring role on The CW's hit show Arrow and leading roles on Wired's web series "Jeff 1000" or on David Martin Porras short "Inside the Box".
And now you can see her in a six-minute short drama called "Dead End", also starring Ivan Sergei and her "Scent of the Missing" co-star Eric Winter, directed by Jay Torres and produced by German Michael Torres.
You may recall that the short was made for the 2012 Producers Guild of America Weekend Shorts Contest honoring the late Debra Hill; the challenge was to make a film – write, shoot and edit it – in two days.
Producer German Michael Torres told us at the time that the short needed additional sound work and that we will stay in touch. Well, it was well worth the wait, as Summer delivers a great performance in this intense and moving short drama.
 
Without more ado, check out Summer Glau, Eric Winter and Ivan Sergei in "Dead End" below, as well a few screen captures we pulled out from the short and follow the link for the rest. Be sure to watch it in HD.
