Short Comedy Film on Financial Elder Abuse
Rooftop Mind, an independent production company, recently created a 15-minute comedy film entitled The Gran’ Scam of Things. It begins with an email from Osagioduwa Williamsona, a Nigerian banker, offering a senior citizen $16,000,000 if she would respond and cooperate. This film, based on a true email, is a creative effort to educate about financial elder abuse through humor. Two reviews of the film are below:
The Gran Scam of Things, reviewed on Cinema-Crazed by Felix Vasquez Jr. (01/13/11): "Director Leor Baum's dramedy is a fantastic short that shows what happens when karma and fate plays a hand in an average woman becoming a hero and helping others in the journey for happiness. "The Gran Scam of Things" is a beautifully acted crowd pleaser and a socially conscious one at that."
The Gran' Scam of Things reviewed on Rogue Cinema by Duane L. Martin (01/01/11): "So how was it? Well, to put it simply, I LOVED this film, and my wife, who watched it with me, felt exactly the same way. There's a really nice sense of innocence to this film that you don't see too often, and it was fun from start to finish. What I found probably the most hilarious though were the fantasy scenes of Osagioduwa peeking around the side of a door on a sandy beach and then emerging with this giant 16 million dollar check and a big friendly smile on his face."
