Rolling Stone named former UC student Andre Hyland’s film as one of the 12 must-see Sundance successes.

According to the publication, “This is just a short, but Andre Hyland is so damn funny you get the feeling he’s going to be around for a long, long time.” “Funnel” was the only short film on the list.

Hyland says he received nothing but positive feedback from audiences and producers interested in his behind-the-scenes work and on-screen performance. Now back in LA, Hyland will meet with industry pros about possible future projects. He says he is most excited about the prospect of making his first feature-length film.
