In my long recurring fantasy of this moment, it went a little differently.
Monday, September 7, 2009
It's been a long road to get here, and it will surely be a long road to the finish line, but this is where it all begins.
I'm happy to announce the production of companion, a short film that I wrote and will be directing at the start of 2010.
Loosely adapted from the short story, companion is the story of Alaina, a housewife living with painful regrets from her past.
This is definitely a departure for me, as it's most certainly not a comedy and it's also the first script I've ever written with a female lead.
I'll be teaming up with an extremely talented group of filmmakers, who will hopefully be able to mask all my shortcomings. For those technical buffs/film nerds, we'll be shooting the film in HD on a Sony HDV-V1U.
Look out for the official Facebook page soon, where you'll be able to follow the production from casting through production and beyond.
Casting begins in late October/early November so if you are an actor/actress or have a friend who is one, stay tuned for the official notice to submit. (As with all my productions, the casting couch will be in full effect.)
As a writer, there are always stories you want to tell. And then there are ones you have to.
Consider this the latter.
