Mashed Potatoes and Syrup is a comedy about Peanut Butter setting out across the kitchen to be with his one true love Jelly.

This short comedy is about a jar of peanut butter named PB who meets the love of his life, Jelly. When they make sandwiches together, its like fate! But when Jelly is opened and put back into the fridge, PB is left in the pantry and their worlds are torn apart. PB then decides to venture out across the kitchen to go be with Jelly in the fridge. Along the way he meets Mayo, an empty jar trying to survive in the trash, Carver, a knife with an addiction and fascination with Butter, and Milk, the fridge security with a secret. But will PB ever be with Jelly? 

Mashed Potatoes and Syrup is a project that I started as my Portfolio Piece at the Art Institute, but was never finished because I decided to leave the school (due to financial reasons). I'm half way through production and would love to follow through with the promise I gave my actors that this film WILL BE completed and submitted to festivals. 

We have our actors already shot. What we need is to shoot the inanimate object scenes, i.e. the jars, and then edit the actors eyes and mouths onto the jars through visual effects. The visual effects is what your contribution will be going towards. It takes time and some special equipment to get it done right, and when we do, it will be hilarious!!!
