Mitch can be seen in the supporting role of Bob, the Producer, in the film, WAITING IN THE WINGS THE MUSICAL
, which is currently making the rounds of film festivals. See Mitch in the award winning 13 minute short film, SHOPPING
. As reviewed by Feliz Vasquez, Jr. at www.cinema-crazed.com, "Tori Davis and Mitch Poulos are fantastic as this couple absolutely shattered by the loss of their child...This provides some horrific and uneasy tension, especially due to Mitch Poulos' top notch performance as this desperate man who knows his wife is commiting a horrible crime, but can barely muster up enough courage to break her delusions for a happy life at the cost of someone else's. SHOPPING is not a film filled with easy decisions and a pleasant moral, it's a sad and tragic little short and one that I adored
