***WHAT IT'S ABOUT: "Zen and the Art of House Painting is the story of Larry, a young boy who finds a spiritual guide in a chain-smoking, hard-living house painter named Dade. As Dade instructs Larry on how to paint a garage, Larry draws poignant and hilarious life lessons from his hotheaded mentor."
***Directed and adapted for the screen by Joel
Maguen, 'Zen And The Art of House Painting'
was developed as part of a unique exercise in
instant adaptation by Los Angeles-based
indie-publishing house Awkward Press. The
film is based on a short story by author
Wayne Scheer from Awkward Two, an anthology
of micro-fiction being released in September
by Awkward Press.
***The publishers of Awkward
Press invited a selection of independent film
directors to shoot instant adaptations of the
stories from the anthology, which will be
included in the iPad release of the book and
viewable on the Awkward Press website
(www.awkwardpress.com). In addition, the
filmmakers are welcome to enter their films
into festivals and filmmaking contests.
