A film about two people, who, at different points in life, come together to form an unlikely connection.

Pre-boarding is a literary fiction short film about twenty-six year old Gabriele and sixty year old John. Both are dealing with their own issues, but their unlikely meeting ignites a verbal sparring match that ultimately allows them to face their separate problems together.

Pre-boarding's first incarnation was in 2011 as a short story entitled "Coffee" by Bob Bartholomew. When Bob moved to Las Vegas in 2013, he met Tobin Herringshaw, who wanted to shoot the story as a short film. Bob's writing often explores unconventional relationships and characters. Sometimes quirky, always troubled, his characters navigate life down unique paths, seeking what all people seek--love, acceptance, and satisfaction.

Tobin started filmmaking with the advent of the DSLR, picking up his first camera in 2008. Since then, he has produced several music videos, commercials, corporate videos and short films. His most recent film, After, explores the science fiction genre and is currently making the festival rounds.
