A glass special jury award for his 2014 short film "Rat Pack Rat" rests on a small upright piano near the doorway to Todd Rohal's small purple home. You'll find him in the kitchen with a stack of note cards, ideas for what is ahead, possibilities, plans, play. Reels of actual film from his early projects are piled in a back room; a framed lobby card for Don Knotts comedy The Shakiest Gun in the West graces the wall. Rohal is forever searching for a Don Knotts-type to star in one his films.
