“Service Road” Female-Led Short Wins Big at the Show Low Film Festival


Carly Miller, Sonora Rowan, and Amanda Chang are the co-founders of Eagle and Child Productions, a SoCal based indie film Production Company. They are the young female team behind the award-winning 30-minute dramedy Service Road and they couldn’t be happier with their festival run.

Service Road first premiered at the Idyllwild International Film Festival in March 2019, where Carly and Sonora were nominated for the Indie Spirit Award and the Mary Austin Awards for Best Producing and Screenwriting and Carly Miller was nominated for Best Directing. At the Show Low International Film Festival in October 2019, they enjoyed an incredibly positive response, as Carly took home the award for Best Director of a Feature & Featurette.

The story of Service Road follows a hard-nosed female federal marshal escorting a male felon across the desert when their car breaks down, resulting in a day of unexpected conversations and confrontations.

The film stars Sarah Navrtail, known for playing Eva Reinhardt in Stargate Origins on SYFY Wire, and Colton Apodaca, an accomplished stage actor and finalist at the Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival.

The project features cinematography by Richard Satoru, production design by Sonora Rowan, and music by Nashville-based folk artist Caitlin Anne Webster.

When Service Road completes the festival rounds, Eagle and Child plans to develop a feature-length western called Rogue, which follows the experience of a young African-American woman on the New Mexico frontier in the 1870s.
