It Began Like This...
A Handful of Pennies started out as a writing test. I had told my friend and colleague, e.E. Charlton-Trujillo (Co-Director), that I wanted her to direct me in something challenging one day. She told me to write something myself with a few parameters: One location, 2 actors, and 4 to 5 pages. She also told me to incorporate a roll of pennies into the film. Roll of pennies? Anyway, after a few attempts, I came up with the concept for A Handful of Pennies. The perfect vehicle for the collaborative talents of Piñata Productions.
What It Is...
Two guys. One room. A roll of pennies. And a single question.
What Else Is It...
A Handful of Pennies is a dark, tense and unsettling story. With cinematography by award-winning Cole Pisano and directing by multi award-winning Josh Flowers and Charlton-Trujillo! Visuals as beautiful as they are disturbing. Performances both raw and realistic. Co-star, Graydon Stroud, delivers a highly emotional portrayal of a person clearly caught up in a situation that is much more dangerous than he ever imagined.
Why You Wanna Care...
Hopefully you watched my Kickstarter video which shows you a sample of the production value. And the other reason is that this is my absolute dream. To finally be in front of the camera and completing a project that has my imprint as a writer, actor and producer. I can't begin to share what that is like for me.
What will the money go to?
The funds we raise will pay our crew, offset some of our post production costs, and enable us to actively submit to film festivals.
