The short film, was made under the banner of m & s Marshall Productions by it’s co-owner Matthew Marshall who is the writer and director of the film. Tuned In deals with family, relationships cell phones and communication. “Finding the right frequency on a radio is crucial to hearing the program that is on the air. The same is true for relationships”, says Marshall. The film is a story about Emma (Marley Cabral), a teenager who disobeys dinner table rules of her parents and gets grounded until she learns to get priorities straight and learns the value of relationships. “A major part of the story deals with the frustration of Emma’s parents and friend Stacey, none of whom can seem to get ‘tuned in’ to Emma’s frequency and break her connection with her cell phone”, adds Marshall. It’s a film that ask the question Are You Listening?
