Believe it or not, I wrote and directed my first short film titled AT WHAT PRICE this past month.
My efforts were matched by fantastic support from a very talented cast and crew who loved and believed in the story. In addition, this film was also 100% sustainably shot. Yes, you read it right. The first ever 100% sustainable film was shot in East Hollywood, the birthplace of the movie industry.
AT WHAT PRICE is about a mother having to decide between remaining at home with her 5 & 6 year old daughters, who look forward to a seemingly hopeless, bleak situation behind the Iron Curtain or risking everything by escaping the country with her boyfriend, leaving her children behind to fend for themselves, cared for by her mother, in order to make a better life for her family in the long term.
This story is my story. I want to share it with all of you and we are already editing and coloring, getting it ready for the Film Festival circuit. Keep your eyes open for a screening near you!
My wonderful crew is listed on our CREW page and if I left out someone, I apologize. I know I need to update it before we are leaving for Australia so shoot me an email if I missed your name. Our sponsors, partners and supporters will be listed as well in the next few weeks.
Shooting this film sustainably has been a dream come true! It has been documented and it’s in the editing room, as we speak. It was shot by documentary filmmaker Dustin Slaughter, whom I met last year at a bus stop. We started chatting, while we waited for the bus, we exchanged contact info and the rest is history!
The documentary will also be submitted to Film Festivals and there will be a screening for friends as well. I’ll let you know when that will happen. In the meantime, you can sign up to my Production Company’s facebook page, twitter feed, YouTube videos about the sustainability making of the film and check out the website at RebelWithoutACarProductions.com
