Moth – Directed by Hilton Carter, Produced by Penn Badgley


This is SO major.  Our good friend Hilton Carter has directed a short film called Moth.  The film was done with the help of Evan Guidera under the umbrella of their production company Fresh Kill, which you’ve seen us mention on here before.  They have been responsible for amazing videos by Shawn Jackson, The Mighty Underdogs and Iglu and Hartley just to name a few.  And of course Hilton directed this little number. 😉 I can’t speak on the film because I haven’t seen it my self but you definitely want to be in the place for the premier.  I’m so proud of these guys for their hustle and their amazing talents. The film was produced by Penn Badgley of Gossip Girl and The Stepfather fame.
