Neil Hollander, one of the nation’s most famous multi-talented people, has gone through several professions and has lived in various parts of the world, including Thailand, Costa Rica, and France. Largely collected by libraries worldwide, he is a well-known figure in the world of literature. Throughout his lifespan as an author, which spanned for around 40 years, he was able to create many exceptional books that are still cherished. From war correspondent, journalist, a sailor and yachtsman, to a movie producer and director, there is no one quite like him, and for that matter, there is barely anyone who can say to have done all those things, and on top of that become a best-selling author. Neil Hollander is a remarkable character with valuable experience that makes him a rare breed even among the biggest professionals, and it is exactly his versatility and multi-talent that have brought him all these titles.

Here is a selection with the top three short films, which show our well-known characters into a slightly different and possibly better light that than made by major Hollywood production houses.
