What if life were a Hollywood movie?

“A Film By” is an existential romantic-comedy/musical about a naïve young voice-over artist named Charlie who decides to escape into his own self-constructed film reality to avoid the pressures and disappointment of real-life. Whizzing between a 1950s musical film, a 1960s noir film and a 1940s Neorealist film, Charlie will come face-to-face with the parts of himself that he’s been running away from.

It’s an easy wish to want life to be more like a Hollywood movie, with the guarantee of a happy ending. Reality is hard to accept and the desire to escape is a strong one.

As filmmakers, we want to provide viewers with the chance to see that desire played out and to explore a fear that almost everyone has had at some point in their lives: fear of the real world. Our intent is to tell a story that is sometimes whimsical, sometimes uncomfortable but altogether profound.

We want to show audiences the joy of being able to break out into song-and-dance, the exhilaration of beating up the “bad guy” and the necessity of facing reality.

Your donations will be used to help us create the world of A Film By through the production design, costumes, hair and make-up, and cinematography and most importantly, to pay for our incredible and dedicated cast and crew.

Every dollar you donate – no matter how big or small – counts.

Help us make this film a reality.

Thank You
