Good Day Atlanta Viewer Information October 28, 2015

Self-Taught Atlanta Filmmaker Premieres New Thriller:  Atlanta filmmaker Carla Saunders wants to make this Halloween an extra-terrifying one -- and she's doing it by releasing her latest pulse-pounding horror/thriller.

"GPS" is the writer-director's new short film, running 26 minutes and premiering Thursday night at the Landmark Midtown Art Cinema in Atlanta.  The film was shot locally in just two days, and features a talented cast of local actors who say they were thrilled to work with Saunders.  You may remember the indie filmmaker was featured on Good Day Atlanta last year, when she'd just finished up her first short film ("Triste"). 

Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken caught up with Saunders and her cast -- for a behind-the-scenes look at this new project.
