Grandpa is crazy? tells the humorous story of Gramps who feels lonely after the death of his wife. In an attempt to get his family’s attention, he pretends to get lost, but efforts backfire and his children take him to court in an attempt to have him declared incompetent. While trying to find a way to get lost, Gramps befriends the teens at the skatepark. There are many adventures throughout the story which are combined with exciting skate scenes. There is an interesting twist that gives a very happy ending.
One of the reasons we attend film festivals is to attract the attention of film buyers who are looking for quality films. Bresnahan says he hopes Grandpa is crazy? will be purchased, which will provide the funds to make more films.
“My goal is to make at least two new movies each year using locations in Utah, with the great talent that we have here in Utah.”
