This is an independently produced short film (less than 15 min.) that will be submitted to various U.S. and international Film Festivals.
The Tunnel is an atmospheric psychological thriller that will combine elements of a classic Twilight Zone episode with a dash of European cinematic flare. The digital film will be shot on location in York County using historic locations by a small, but talented, local crew.

Physically fit and modestly attractive but not a fashion model. Gale is on her daily morning jog along an abandoned railway line, before going to her job. She is driven to succeed at her job and to stay competitive with much younger coworkers and rivals. She has begun to doubt her own abilities and she wonders if she can still compete with younger women. So far this has not prevented her from trying to keep up. But, her doubts have led her to question everything in her life. She isn’t certain anymore that her life has meaning. What happens during her jog will threaten everything she knows even her own existence.
