"The Amazing Mortimer" is a Huntington University-produced short film about a down and out ventriloquist who realizes that he can no longer make a living doing what he loves. The only positive in his life is his relationship with Gerry, the nephew/niece of a theatre owner, who is about to be taken off to boarding school.
