OMG...It's Beth Horn

Earlier this year, Johngy's Beat covered the premiere of Fancypants, an independent film co-starring Beth Horn, a Johngy's Beat favorite for many years.  On the red carpet, I asked Beth for a scoop on a future project.  She said she had a project (with Fancypants Director-Screenwriter Joshua Russell) in the works.  She didn't reveal much, but she did give me the initials "OMG".
I figured it would be a while before I heard anything more about this mystery project.  Earlier this week, the wait ended when I saw a post on Beth's Facebook page.
Beth wrote, "Check out "OMG" - a short film by Joshua Russell filmed in Chicago! :)"
She also gave the link for OMG.
Of course, I immediately followed the link to see OMG.  It is a riveting 8.5 minutes of film.  The short film stars Beth, her husband Bruce Butler and Brian Plocharczyk.  It's got a little bit of everything and quite a bit of a story packed within those 8.5 minutes.
You can check out OMG here and then check out Beth Horn's Facebook page to see all future updates.
