BYRON'S THEME Will Screen at the Beverly Hills Film Festival

Byron's Theme, a short film written by Bennett Barbakow and Michael Grant Terry, and directed by Barbakow, has been set to screen at the 2013 International Beverly Hills Film Festival.

Byron's Theme is a dark comedy that tells the story of Nick, who lives his life inside his padded comfort zone. When he accidentally loses a tooth, and confuses his girlfriend for her twin sister, Nick finds himself stranded in the middle of nowhere ... with nothing, and no one. Exploring what it means to be alone as a man, Nick goes on an existential journey in an attempt to quiet the chaos of his own life... with the help of his golden retriever, Byron. Byron's Theme ... a love story, with a tail. To view a trailer for the film, go to www.byronstheme.com.

Michael Grant Terry stars as Nick. Terry is perhaps best known for his recurring role as Wendell Bray on the FOX television series Bones. His other TV credits include The Closer, CSI, Criminal Minds, Castle, and most recently, a recurring role on NBC's hit drama Grimm. Bennett Barbakow is a director and composer in Los Angeles, who works on a variety of projects from commercials and music videos to film, comedy series, and documentaries. Byron's Theme also features Allison Paige, Jon Gries, and Byron the Dog (as himself). It is produced by Barbakow and Terry in association with Test Pattern, LLC, and Port Royale, Inc.
