When a tragedy takes Annie's fiance out of the picture, she copes in seemingly unexpected ways, that maybe aren't that strange at all
Around the Corner introduces us to Daniel and Annie, a young couple very much in love and about to be married. When a tragic accident takes Daniel out of the picture we see how Annie copes in seemingly unexpected ways that when we think about it, maybe aren't that strange at all.
ABOUT THE PROJECT
The setting for our film is the spectacular Monterey Peninsula and Carmel Valley. It is so exciting for us to be coming from Los Angeles and bringing this project to our home town where the artistic culture and supportive community has already been such a delight in our process. It is also a beautiful juxtaposition as a backdrop to such a fraught story.
This film will bring several renowned local Peninsula actors and actresses together with the talented professional LA based crew we have gathered for this project and we can't wait for them to meet!
We plan on using the Kickstarter funds to pay for ALL of the film's expenses including equipment rentals, on-set meals, and submission fees for festivals. (We want to play at as many prestigious festivals as we can and the fees add up)! Anything you can contribute is greatly appreciated!
