Great stuff, and congratulations to all.

I think Russo's film is a feature, not a short, though. About a male janitor who becomes pregnant. Working title "The Immaculate Conception of Little Dizzle", though I preferred the pithy earlier working title, "Number 2."

Actually, it is a short, but it's confusing. It's a short that's picking up the pieces of a failed feature, and then it may go back into forming a new feature.

Here's the skinny from Creative Capital:

Fish Out Of Water is a short film that combines self-referential documentary, animation and humorous, poetic narrative. Intended as a response to the filmmaker’s failed narrative feature project about a group of male janitors who become pregnant and then miscarry, Fish Out Of Water uses male miscarriage as a surreal, playful metaphor for unrealized ambitions, and as a commentary on gender roles. Russo will make this film first as a stand-alone work, later integrating it into a
revitalized version of his feature.

I think there's an abandoned gas station in the International District on Jackson and maybe, 6th or 7th but it's probably too small and doesn't have much of a yard around it. Or how about the old Lloyds Rocket? Probably still too small.
