A recent filmmaking student of Sal Petrosino, Eugen recently published a trailer for the film through filmshortage.com and entered it into a competition on Awardeo. Eugen writes, “I can highly recommend both sites to other students to use for premiering their trailers online. This definitely helped me because the trailer was viewed about 1.5k times on Vimeo alone and I was contacted by a company that wants me to do a commercial for them, and by a musician who wants to score my next film.”
