4am Gas Station Muzak (2015)
14min · Short, Fantasy · 18 March 2015
Mark's car breaks down in the middle of nowhere. The nearest gas station can be seen in the distance, and he knows he must get his car to it. Inside the gas station, a fallen Angel, played by Jose Yenque (Academy Award winning film Traffic) and The Devil played by Amin Jospeh (The Expendables) are playing a game of chess, where the fallen Angel works as a clerk. However, this chess game is no friendly chess game, they're waging on people's souls. When Mark, pushes his car up to a gas pump (played by up and coming Los Angeles actor Philip Adkins,) they realize they have their first soul to bet on. Once Mark enters the gas station, he is greeted by The Angel. The Devil, who has morphed into a more pleasant individual, offers Mark a job. Mark gladly accepts the job from The Devil, and this leads us into a dark fantasy that Mark has to escape from. While he is alone in the vast desert, he is approached by several different people at different times. Mark can no longer determine who is "good" and who is "evil;" who is leading him towards truth vs. who is leading him onto a dark path.
