Ramp, a short film I had the pleasure of filming last winter is finally available online, making it’s debut on No Budge. Written and directed by Ethan Mermelstein, Ramp follows an elderly woman who becomes obsessed with returning a portable ramp to a hardware store. I play Shanee, the disgruntled Home Depot employee she encounters along the way. Enjoy!
