Molly at the Arcadia is a New Jersey set romantic comedy with a bit of a twist.
Over a disastrous meal of Chinese take out, Molly's boyfriend of three years has uniformly decided that they aren’t ready to move in with each other. In a moment of bad timing, a heartbroken and romantically uncertain Molly is obligated to attend her friend’s bachelorette party at a mysterious strip club...of a different kind. The Arcadia -- where the men are handsome, half-naked, and super considerate, and the act of stripping is not entirely required. But when the unexpected is suddenly the norm and as an intense curiosity surrounding The Arcadia takes hold, Molly is forced to finally stand up for herself and really re-evaluate what kind of guy she truly desires.

JUST SO YOU KNOW, THIS IS US
Writer/Director - David Harry Yoon
Producers - Cameron Combe, Katie Rotondi, Patricia Seely
Executive Producer / Cinematographer - José Andrés Cardona
Molly At The Arcadia was entirely independently financed, cobbled together from savings and current earnings, fueled by this driving, itching force to create something truly special. Our amazing crew was entirely comprised of all working professionals within the film industry here in New York, who all graciously donated their time. Dedication coupled with a desire to forge on as artists, we were able to pull off the completion of principal photography of a short film on a skeletal budget.
Shot on the RED Scarlet by our tremendous EP/DP, José Andrés Cardona, with extremely generous support and help from NY Vendors and our NJ locations, particularly The Crossroads, we successfully completed a four day shoot in mid-December.
We just need your help finishing it.
HERE'S WHERE WE ASK FOR YOUR GENEROUS and LOVING SUPPORT...
Now that post-production is actively (and speedily!) underway, there are just a few things that we're asking your support for:
- COLOR -- color correcting so that the image is as perfect as we can get it.
- SOUND -- sound design, additional dialogue recording, score, and a final mix, so that the sound is as perfect as we can get it.
- PROMOS -- festival submission fees, promotional materials (buttons! posters! etc!), building a website and social media presence to help promote the short!
Any contribution will be deeply, deeply appreciated and will help with the remaining work ahead. Please help us breathe some more life into the film! It's been a great road thus far, but we'd love to have some more companions for the remaining leg of our journey. :-)
Risks and challenges
We’ve tackled so many obstacles during the actual filming of this little film, that I am absolutely certain there’s no bringing us down. Although, production has wrapped, the hard part is still to come! We will continue to battle the many challenges that remain with restless resolve, continuing to strive towards greatness. And with your help, together, we’ll be able to give our little film the polish and beauty, in sight and in sound, to really elevate it above all others.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
