About the filmmaker:
Writer-director Josh Melrod first honed his skills as the editor for projects like Annie Silverstein’s short film Skunk which won an award at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival. In 2012, he co-directed the documentary Cartoon College about The Center for Cartoon Studies at White River Junction, Vermont. For his debut narrative feature, Major Arcana, he was inspired to cast Ujon Tokarski, a real-life carpenter who worked on Melrod’s house while he was writing the script.See all virtual titles
