FORT WAYNE—According to the National Safety Council, there are 1.6 million accidents per year due to texting while driving distracted. An area filmmaker and producer has come out with a short film in hopes of reducing that staggering number.
J. Eric Smith, CEO and founder of Editainment Film Productions (Efpfilms), a local film production company in Fort Wayne that produces Melodrama films, has produced a spine chilling short film about texting while driving distracted.
The film, “The Last Text Message,” is scheduled to be shown at 5 p.m., Oct. 5 on at Carmike Jefferson Point 18 Theater, 4250 W. Jefferson Blvd. Efpfilms is also planning to air their other short film, “Help, I need a jump,” as a double feature to the texting and driving movie. Both films are rated “G.”
