The story behind the film

“The Associate” was an incredible short film shot in the Philadelphia area. We had a terrific local team of filmmakers, lead by duo Mike Wenderlich and Sean Michael Conway.
The greatest asset this film has going for it is the camaraderie of artists behind it. This film is just the beginning of an outstanding collection of films made by Play Retro Productions and Stay Positive Productions.
