With a cast headed by the massively talented Allyn Carrell, Alternative Math is extremely well cast. Nobody, of course, can exceed the performance given by Carrell, who portrays her role with Oscar-worthy perfection as the teacher.
Alternative Math is directed by David Maddox. He coordinates beautiful (yet understated) cinematography and features a catchy score and an easy-to-follow timeline. The short has been featured at dozens of film festivals from Sydney to Miami and everywhere in between, and I for one, am not surprised, as the film delivers on multiple levels.
