With all that’s going on in the world, mental health is a serious issue and topic.
Infinity is a film that illuminates PTSD, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, a mental health condition.
I saw it on the big screen at Raleigh Studios, Hollywood.
Infinity is a poignant story, a short film, about PTSD.
Randy Crowder is a man in film, a talented director, writer and actor. Infinity is significant, not only because of the fierce storytelling but the lead is female, and 50% of the producers are women. Three of these women will be featured on the International Women in Film podcast. For example:
We will feature Jeanette O’Connor actress extraordinaire with an epic Hollywood resume, also a proud producer of Infinity.
(Jeanette filming with Academy Award Winner Jon Voight on Ray Donovan)
Dawn Higginbotham, is a Writer, Director and Producer, who is a producer on Infinity and she is featured on Episode 16 of the International Women in Film podcast.
Dawn shares, “Randy didn’t shy away from telling a difficult, dark story with a twist.”
Renee O’Connor, who plays the lead, Elizabeth in Infinity, is featured on Episode 17 of the International Women in Film Podcast. Renee is an accomplished Writer, Director, Producer also known for her six seasons of work as Gabrielle on NBC’s Xena the Warrior Princess.
Synopsis of Infinity: Elizabeth enjoys the perfect life. But bad things happen to good people as this perfect life unravels in the blink of the eye from the unthinkable to the unimaginable. What if, the eyes truly are the windows to the soul?

Here are the quotes gathered from industry guests after Infinity’s first screening. Read the objective outside perspective:
Director Randy Crowder’s statement:
I believe film should not only entertain an audience, make them laugh, cry and move them visually and emotionally, but, should make them think and question. Through the telling of INFINITY I touch on several subjects pulled from current news headlines. Inspired by my own personal love for my 3-year-old nephew, I experienced a fear that if anything catastrophic happened to him, especially on my watch, my life would be forfeit. What allows someone like Susan Smith to put her toddlers in a car and drive them into a pond? How does zealotry, even in the hands of an unstable mind, lead to committing unimaginable acts? Was Terri Schiavo really unaware or what horrors might live in a damaged brain? I’ve seen these kinds of events happen time and time again. This film is just an observance, not a comment or conclusion. Just a, what if? What if?
I’d love for everyone to see it so we can talk about it. It would be great if you can see the film before hearing the International Women in Film podcast episodes that feature the women of Infinity.
