...and some of the interviews from the EPK (Electronic Press Kit):

...and there are more cast and crew interviews on the official website.

"The cast of THE WHOLE TRUTH take tremendous risks and extend themselves further than I had ever imagined possible. Creating a safe environment in which Actors can fully experience themselves 'out of the box', takes a great deal of trust between them and their Director and clearly Colleen is a master at creating this safe environment and bond."

Russell Boast, Casting/ Director, Pagano/Manwiller, Inc.

"It's an uncommon comedy. I had a lot of fun. I was thrilled to see a U.S. comedy so extreme (well you’re the country that invented political correctness, right ;-), really edgy... and I can see why people can love or hate it. It’s just not what you can expect nowadays from a common comedy – or a festival film... it’s bolder and riskier."

Uwe Lützen, former marketer, English speaking films for Europe

Writer/Director/Producer: Colleen Patrick
Executive Producer: Gary Allen Tucci

Ooo what you said!
Notes from pros who have worked with Colleen

"I thoroughly enjoyed working with Colleen on MORTAL WOUND and I am truly glad to have met her.

I found her to have a very detailed, focused and consistent vision for her film from pre-production through post-production.

Colleen's enthusiasm is extremely infectious - she truly loves what she does and I found myself driven further by her vibe.

I also found her to be an excellent communicator, mixing solid direction and constructive feedback with humor and fun.

I sincerely enjoyed working with Colleen and hope I get many more chances to do so in the future. It was a pleasure."

-Dave Chick, Composer, Hatched Productions
