Tommy is a quiet, Latino janitor working for a small, up and coming business. While he enjoys his work and does it well, Tommy’s true infatuation is with the owner and manager of the company, his boss Wendy. He loves her from afar though, and she in turn is completely unaware of Tommy’s real feelings toward her. Wendy’s company secures a business deal and she plans an important teleconference for one night while Tommy is working. Wendy and her coworkers leave, planning to return later for the conference. Alone in the office, Tommy goes through his cleaning routine. In the conference room, Tommy pauses to write Wendy a letter, but his pen runs out of ink. He goes to find another, but unwittingly leaves his keys and the intimate letter in the conference room as the door closes behind him. Locked out and with time running down, Tommy must find a way to either retrieve the letter or finally express his true feelings toward the woman he loves.

FRANCES MITCHELL

T S CA O’S BI

Frances is one of the most fearless actors I have met. She will take any role and make it hers, no matter the size or scope. I wish I had 100 more like her to work with. Ernie Smith - Skelly Films "Working with Frances Mitchell is like working with water. She molds herself to the scene effortlessly and is, quite frankly, refreshing to work with. My favorite thing about directing her is her ability to process the character the way the writer has envisioned. This is a gift and she is a gem. I look forward to working with her again. Bryan G.Thompson - Imani Films" (According to http://www.frances-mitchell.com/)

N ME

I remember when I showed up late to the Cinema freshmen meet and greet; I had been too scared to walk back to my dorm from Church Hill. I was intimidated when I entered the studio and it was just Dr. Tregenza, Professor Kjeldsen, and myself but I walked over and introduced myself. They asked me, “What are you looking learn from this program?” I thought for a second and said, “Everything.” The truth was I wanted to direct but I felt I wouldn’t be close to worthy of such a position until I had learned every in and out of all the departments. Three years later, I got my shot with Hello, Wendy and yet I feel like I still have so much to learn from my professors and my classmates. I looked at the crew I had and was so impressed with their abilities on and off set. I truly believe that VCUarts Cinema has never been stronger, hungrier, or skilled. I want to thank my peers for putting up with my learning curve and teaching me that I haven’t even scratched the surface. Thank you to Penny and Jim for trusting me with this project; it was a real privilege to see you guys in action. I can’t wait to see where this film, this program, and my friends and peers can go in the future. Thank you all.
