Prognosis

The first film I ever wrote, directed and produced was Prognosis. Phiamma Elias and John Branch are the primary actors in this film, and they did a phenomenal job! Kristian Blackwell and Kathleen Cafiero also make appearances.
 Prognosis is a drama about an alcoholic named Bob, who has a drunk driving accident that leaves him a quadriplegic. This video picks up from his first day home from the hospital and the chilly reception he receives from his family. Watch the video--it's intense!

  1. Wow! So many emotions in that and all of which I'm sure could just be the iceberg of what a family in that situation would be feeling. You managed to portray so much in such a small amount of time. I actually wasn't ready to see it end.

    Good work Holly.

  2. Thanks so much! I appreciate the good words. The story was begging to be told.

    I've actually had people ask me if I have an alcoholic in my family and I tell them no and they say that the film felt like I knew from personal experience. So that was high praise, I thought. :)
