Search For Great Films: Half Sour

Every week we watch hundreds of films in order to find great filmmakers to work with, and in our search, we love stumbling on films that inspire us like this one.

Half Sour

(website) Only the trailer is available.


Half Sour, directed and produced by Sean McGing and Mary Anne Rothberg, follows John Till as he must think outside the box as he enters the workforce during the worst economy in modern times. Working at a friend’s pickle factory, the self-taught entrepreneur started pickling everything in sight to sell at farmers’ markets all over Long Island and New York City. One by one, John reached out to his struggling childhood friends in Providence, Rhode Island to involve them in the business, throwing virtual lifelines. Sharing a love of skateboarding, they band together to make it in New York.


This film encompasses everything that we love about our own filmmakers - their dedication to pursuing personal passions, through determination, hard work while engaging their own community.
