"Humbled and Proud"
"I was so thrilled to have such a professional and dedicated cast and crew to help make this project one of my favorite projects so far."
-Sean M. Hickey [Director/Writer/Team Leader]
"An experience I will never forget!"
I don't think I could've asked for a better team. I felt the shoot went smooth, besides getting bit up by some fireants :-). This experience has stretched me as an actor. I feel honored by Sean, Karima, and Donald for letting me be part of their work; that they trusted me to bring their story to life. This has left me with memories I will never forget. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
-Jessica Dechant ["Em"]
The only way to prepare for this type of production is to trust yourself as a performer and trust your choices and instincts as actor, and most importantly trust your director and team. I guess the key word is ”Trust”. Sean and Lion's Claw delivered again in a Big Way! The experience with them was awesome! The set was full of trust, respect and support. I couldn't have asked for a better experience or team. I had brilliant & talented co-stars, Sean Hickey directed a another great piece and co-wrote another great script. The production and day ran as smooth as butter. What can I say, the movie gods were in our corner that day, it was an amazing experience beginning to end, I definitely feel I was stretched and grew as a performer from this experience. I can't wait to work with Sean Hickey and Lion's Claw again!”
-George Moreno ["Sam Joel"]
"Riveting & Heartfelt"
My time acting in "The Ultimate Prize" was riveting. The writing tells a great story and the improv all the actors performed was heartfelt.
-Adrian Zeigler ["Peb"]
"Something Really Clever"
"Sean, Donald, and I found ourselves' back against the wall pitching ideas to each other at one in the morning. We struggled, at first, to come up with an original idea that we all loved that incorporated the Genre: Thriller/Suspense, and the 48-hour Competition elements. I think we came up with something really clever that I am proud of."
-Karima J. “K2” Sphere [Writer/1st AD]
I had a very exciting experience being a part of "The Ultimate Prize." It was very impressive how the film was created from scratch in just 48 hours. I would be very happy to be a part of their next production."
-Barry White ["Coz Geo"]

What incredible teamwork Karima, Sean and I did with a group of talented actors like George, Jessica, Adrian and Barry. They each inspired me in creating the film the way we visioned at 3am. Making sure our location was safe and secured on set was first and foremost. Even the owner of the property was amazed at our professionalism. I had to pull him aside while we were filming. Imagine that! It was awesome! Can you believe it? A short Thriller/Suspense film in 48 hours. "The Ultimate Prize" is, to me, when an entire team stands out, gets organized & gets the job done.
