Marcus is a lead animator at Floyd County Productions (Archer) and founder of Contraband Cinema. Before the animation and before the microcinema, he co-founded Climenole with his filmmaking partner Gideon Kennedy. Their latest film Limo Ride premiered at this year's Atlanta Film Festival to two sold screenings.

About Limo Ride
Ten friends tell the unbelievable true story of the New Year none of them would forget – when they hired a limousine to take them to the beach…only to find themselves left for dead on a dirt road 24 hours later. Broad subject – the greatest bar story ever told – meets experimental form in the debut feature-length docu-drama by filmmakers Gideon C. Kennedy and Marcus Rosentrater.
LIMO RIDE is a true tale told by those who lived it, ten Southern raconteurs as practiced in spinning great yarns as they are in hard living.
Interweaving the audio of the participants themselves with a fast-paced visual narrative, it is not just a catalogue of facts. The storytellers’ knack for exaggeration, the passage of time and mind-altering drugs guarantee that much. Instead, it is one story told ten different ways. Insightful contradictions along with unreliable support weave a modern myth that falls not just into the South’s tradition of oral history, but into the mythological traditions of any barroom, any campfire, any time, everywhere.
