MOM is a story about a young man named Try who hires a rag-tag detective agency to locate his biological mother in Brooklyn.
Cavazos Films is embarking on its first feature length film production, a movie titled Mom, written and to be directed by upcoming talent Lonely Christopher. This is a story about a young man named Try who hires a rag-tag detective agency to locate his biological mother in Brooklyn. In this fish-out-of-water situation, it soon becomes apparent that Try is hiding important details about his life and masking his confusion regarding his true motivations. A funny and profound adventure ensues as Try confronts his most repressed problems and desires, whether he likes it or not. This is an intellectual and sometimes experimental comedy, which is already in pre-production for a planned May shoot. We are attempting to raise $18,000.
We are going to spend this money on the technical side of the film. We need:
- A sound technician
- A steady cam
- Lens rentals
- Set design
We have put together a great team for this production.
- Lonely Christopher, great writer/director, with a lot of momentum after the publication of his first collection of short fiction, The Mechanics of Homosexual Intercourse
- Cavazos Films a production team that won't stop until the film is made at its possible best
- Actors who are already spending most of their time rehearsing the material
- A cinematographer who can get the best shots from the Fort Greene landscape
- A young team of PA's and interns who are giving this project all of their free time.
Thank you very much for taking the time to reads this. We will be adding more links and updates as they become available.
