“It was something that started on my couch with a crazy simple idea,” says actor Jake Sandvig of A Bag of Hammers, the feature film he co-wrote with writing partner Brian Crano.  The quirky comedy about a con game gone wrong debuted at this year’s South by Southwest Film Festival. Sandvig not only wrote the film, but he also stared in it. Script sat down with actor-turned-writer to find out what it was like to juggle roles behind and in front of the camera on his first feature film as a screenwriter.
