The nurses care for Walter, but this is challenging as he has a difficult time identifying between reality and imagination. What is sacrificed to spend 15 minutes each day with his true love Ellen?

Check out the Trailer/Teaser for Thumb Wrestler the Short Film, Co-Produced by Forgotten Artist Productions. Written by Mark Levitt. Directed by Michael Thomas Cain.

Newt "The Digit" Feldenstein was a world renowned thumb wrestler. The best poker and flicker the sport has ever seen: Adoring ringside crowds, luxurious lifestyle, and the green eyed envy of a world who-at very best- must remain contented to use their thumbs for the purposes of hailing cabs or showing approval at something.

But the quick hand of time spares no one...not even a famous "thumbsman." So, after years at the top of the game, a grim medical prognosis forces Newt into a career tailspin...he is sidelined, shunted aside, and forced to bear the taunts of any random, hungry, thumb-wrestling wannabee who strives to snatch the last vestige of Newt's thumb wrestling crown.

Broken in mind and body, Newt must make a choice... Quit the fight game outright, turn to performance enhancing drugs, or should he accept, adapt, and boldly embrace whatever life throws at him ... no matter whose thumb lies in wait for him at the other side of that next ring.

So whattaya say?, get out that popcorn, flex those fingers, and let’s get ready to thumble!!!!!!

Mark Parsia as Newt “The Digit” Feldenstein
Chaz McCormack as Rutager
Ceren Zorlu as Vanna Reynolds
Ron Schnittker as Tommy Feldenstein
Mark Levitt as “Gritty” McGraw
Ron Barba as Sam “Greenthumb” Jackson
William Sours as Mitch Clydehopper
Linda Alago as Lola
Michael Thomas Cain as Don Donaldson
Andrew Selig as Ron Renaldi

Greig Roselli as the Ring Announcer

Coming Soon!

Eliminated, The Short Film produced by Forgotten Artist Productions. Written and Directed by Michael Thomas Cain.

​A working class, married couple are coerced and locked in their own home by a soldier in order to be routinely questioned, but as they move through this strange and absurd circumstance, James and Mary are tricked into admitting guilt for living their daily routine, and as a result, it is the soldier’s job, duty, and responsibility to make sure that these blue collar workers are eliminated because of their class in life and as a result of new government laws. What price will be paid for attempting to live the American dream in the shadows of a corrupt power?
