i’m making a new short film – you will meet a sexy stranger

i’m really excited to have started preproduction on my 6th short film! i was too busy last year because of the workload from the nick fellowship, but now i’m not working and so i wanted to make good use of this time.

title:
you will meet a sexy stranger

logline:
a comedy about a guy, a girl, and a psychic.

here are the nuts and bolts:

  • 6 page script
  • 3 characters
  • 1 location
  • 1 day shoot.

CAST

i want to work with SAG actors, so i have to become a SAG signatory. there’s a lot of paperwork involved, but working with SAG gives me a much bigger pool of talent to draw from.

luckily, i already have an actor for my movie, tw leshner. he’s been in a bunch of commercials, including this one for tmobile (i will keep him right side up in my movie.)

and this one for honda.

i posted an ad on lacasting.com for the 2 other roles. within 24 hours, i had 900 submissions! it’s going to take a long time to go through all those headshots.

BUDGET

i can make this movie fairly cheaply and shoot it myself, or i can hire a DP a rent a nice camera. i’m considering funding it through kickstarter. beyond the usual incentives of digital download, dvd copy, etc, i would offer critiques for scripts, and consultations for filmmakers.

please like the facebook page for the movie. thanks!
