Category: Commercial spot for reel
Production Phase: Presently, I am casting for this project. The location has not been secured. Seeking an old dark dingy bar.
Shooting Schedule: No date assigned. But I desire to get this project moving asap.
We have a hero racing through city to confront the bad guys at a location given to him over a phone by his “CIA” handlers. He races to a bar and sits at a table occupied by a charming couple. He confronts them thinking he has found his bad guys. Turns out he misread the directions and the COUPLE was expecting to meet a man from craigslist to purchase a stove. Confusion ensues. He checked his phone and learns he read the address wrong.
This is a fun one. A big impact part of this is the scene where the car races through town. We will safely deploy multiple cameras in and out of the car to really stress the effort our hero goes through to confront the bad guys. The footage of the car will be shot on a separate day. There will be an inert, non-working replica Walther PPK used onset.
