Different families will face what was, is and will be to live and die in the world when time itself comes to an end.

'Temp-to-Perm' is a four-minute meditation on the bizarre behavior of the corporate culture: What begins as a seemingly benign interview for the position of 'temp-to-perm,' Jane is subjected to an increasingly bizarre series of questions and demands as we learn just how far she's willing to go for gainful employment. The film begins by examining the dehumanizing behavior lauded in offices spaces but then takes a turn into the absurd tabloid demands placed on actresses.

Dug Up Productions

Michael Peterson - Producer/VFX Supervisor
Dug Up Productions offers exceptional services at unparalleled rates. We provide a complete, all encompassing post production package, an all encompassing makeup and special effects production package, and producing services in exchange for percentages of films.
Michael is a lifelong storyteller who spent 15 years as a special makeup effects artist for film and T.V. Some of the most noteable titles his work is featured in includes Pirates of the Caribbean, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Van Helsing. Over the last 4 years he has dedicated himself to writing, directing, and producing films, his core passion.
​Michael is endlessly fascinated by the semiotic nature of surrealism and the beauty of well structured film narrative. Examples of this elegant combination of storytelling style is: Guillermo del Toro Pan’s Labyrinth, John Carpenter’s In the Mouth of Madness, and most of, if not all of, David Cronenberg’s and David Lynch's films.
