TOP SECRET Indie Film Hustle Project Finally Revealed

The day is finally here. I’ve been teasing you guys for months now. The top secret project I’ve been working on is my next feature film called “On the Corner of Ego and Desire.” The entire film was shot at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. The film was written, produced, directed by me, produced by Adam Bowman of Media Circus, shot by Austin Nordell and starring Rob AliceaSonja O’Hara, and Randy Ramos Jr.

Here is the synopsis:

Three hapless independent filmmakers make the trek to the Sundance Film Festival and go through absolute hell in search for the elusive producer that is supposedly going to buy their independent feature film, all within 24 hours. With a producer who stole money from his mother’s retirement account to fund the film, to a director who thinks she’s the next Francois Truffaut, to an actor/editor who is a doormat for everyone, this motley crew of misfit filmmakers have a tough time navigating the chaotic world of the Sundance Film Festival. Ignorance, foolishness and above all ego drive the team to implosion as they struggle to realize their filmmaking dreams.

I wanted to make a film that would be an allegory of what “not” to do with an indie film. The movie is funny, sad, ridiculous and heart-wrenching. I didn’t want to announce the project without being able to show the IFH Tribe something so check out the teaser trailer below.

Let me know what you guys think. Take a listen to the episode as I go into more detail on how we shot it, what camera and lenses we used and much more. I’ll be breaking down the process of how the film came together in the coming weeks and months. For some behind the scenes photos of the production go to: On the Corner of Ego and Desire – Official Site.

I hope this little film will inspire you to go out and tell your story. Keep that hustle going, keep that dream alive and I’ll talk to you soon.
