Take a Hike


 Mark Blitch has created another hilarious short film starring Taylor Brandt and Todd Terry.  Take a Hike centers around Adam (Brandt) charming his hopefully soon-to-be father-in-law David (Terry) into the wilderness to ask for his daughter’s hand in marriage. Adam hopes to spend time with David, in anticipation that he will enjoy his company and approve Adam’s desire to marry his daughter. Events take a slight turn for the worst and Take a Hike has the audience constantly guessing what the final outcome will be.

Take a Hike is literally a laugh out loud comedy filled with great acting and beautiful scenic shots. Blitch has the ability to create such a wonderful dynamic between Adam and David in the enchanting wilderness. The acting is superb, Brandt is perfect as the young, boyish Adam that can’t seem to do anything right and Terry is delightful as the protective father wanting only the best for his daughter. The emotional range both actors garner is remarkable and captivating to witness.

Take a Hike won two awards for Best Comedy and Best Screenplay Comedy and was nominated for a total of twelve awards at the 168 Festival in LA. The film is not only funny but beautifully heartfelt. It encompasses an array of emotions in just the eleven minutes that it is presented. Both actors do a magnificent job, making the audience root for them both.
