About this project

The Frye Brothers Had a Threesome

Andy and Oliver Frye are brothers by blood and best friends by choice. They share an apartment, friends, and even work in the same office together. This all comes to head, however, when these brothers who do everything together, do the one thing they should never do together.

After a spat with his girlfriend Hannah, Andy wants nothing more than to drink and make some regrets with his brother, and make some regrets they do. After a night of partying and becoming a little too intoxicated, Andy and Oliver end up having sex with a girl together. The next morning, after realizing what they’ve done, their lives get turned upside down.

To make matters more awkward, their sister Lisa flies in for an unexpected visit. Now, the brothers have to figure out how to navigate their relationship while saving face with their sister and friends.

This is the second feature film from Ronald Short and Short Pictures Independent, LLC.  Their first film, Billi & Theodore, went on to premiere at the Indianapolis International Film Festival in Indiana, won Best Actor, Actress, Feature Film, and Music at the MayDay Film Festival, and is set to play at more festivals and premiere online in the next few months.

TRAILER FOR BILLI & THEODORE

Short and his production company also produce short films of varying genres and online sketches via their comedy group BACON.  These projects have played at various festivals, screenings, open screen nights, and showcases over the last few years to overwhelmingly positive responses.

FUNDS - What We Have and What We Need

THIS ISN'T GOING TO HAPPEN WITHOUT YOUR HELP!

This project has been gestating for about 5 years and we officially started pre-production at the beginning of 2013, busting ass to start shooting.  So far, we've been able to raise approximately $4,000, but with most feature films, that amount isn't enough, even with our team working for very little.

With the additional $10,000 we're trying to raise, we'll be able to pay our talent, our crew, rent equipment we need, feed everyone on set, and so on and so forth.  This is an indie comedy, so it'll be easy to make on a small budget, but next to impossible without this amount, especially if we want the talented people we're going after involved.

Risks and challenges

We're aiming to start production in late August 2013, but things happen and some shifting may take place. The film will be shot in the next few months at the very least. If and when we hit our goal, we will be able to make a more solidified start date.

If you are contributing to be able to view The Frye Brothers Had a Threesome online, you will be sent a link and a password to watch after the film has had its festival premiere. All other online film links will be sent out shortly after the campaign ends and we've hit our goal.

If you're purchasing a ticket to the premiere, you will need to be able to provide your own travel and accommodations.

The consultation for filmmakers with either Danny Costa or Short Pictures Independent can be fulfilled through e-mail, phone, or Skype.
