The Oscars are less than two weeks away now. 

Here on Take Two - we're going to focus our lenses on two categories - best animated film and best live-action short.

On that last front, we heard last week from the filmmakers behind the short titled "Shok."

Today, we hear from Patrick Vollrath, writer and director of "Everything will be Okay."

In this short film, a divorced father picks up his eight-year old daughter for what seems like a normal visit.

After a trip to the toy store, the nervous father takes her to a passport office and later to the airport where it becomes clear to the girl that this visit is turning into a kidnapping.
