The Producers 2: The Campaigners

Donald Trump’s rhetoric is so offensive, is as though someone designed his campaign to fail. Who else would purposely mount a disastrous public display but Max and Leo from the Mel Brooks musical The Producers?

The brains behind Third Beat Magazine is also the brains behind this little short. Written and produced by Sharilyn Johnson, The Campaigners stars Josh Murray as Max and Robert Keller as Leo. Dan B. Rosen directed, with cinematography by Georgi Yordanov.
