A 10-year-old boy who directed a short film starring Kevin Bacon is suing the woman who helped to finance the movie.

Dominic Scott Kay alleges in a lawsuit filed on his behalf yesterday that Conroy Kanter unfairly demanded creative control and distribution rights to Saving Angelo after she invested $11,000 into the short film.

Kanter alleges she gave Kay the money as a charitable contribution and insists the lawsuit stems from a disagreement with Kay's mother over who should benefit from the film.

Kay, a child actor who was the voice of Wilbur the Pig in Charlotte's Web, is demanding his financier has no right to creative control, distribution or promotion of the short film.
