Art of Panic is a comedic, nonstop action film about two twenty somethings who pull off a heist with an ensemble cast of colorful characters who demand a piece of the score. 

Joe Jensen desperately needs to sell the weed he's been getting from his supplier, Allen. But, he just can't part with it. In order to pay for the deficit he's run up, he agrees to drive a car loaded with marijuana from Los Angeles to Vegas. What Joe and his best friend, Loyal Parsons, don't realize is that the car is packed with grade A heroin shipped over the border from Mexico. Through a series of hilarious and bloody mishaps, the two boys lose the car, find a golden sword and a long list of enemies trying to replace the missing merchandise.

A short, very stocky punk rocker, sports a tight tee that says, "fuct" across the front, and 9 eye Docs. A rebel. Loyal is a physical, funny, crazy kid that will do anything for a laugh. He was the class clown before he dropped out of high school. There is a quiet desperation beneath his bawdy, physical humor. He's looking for validation and ultimately family.
