Hey! My name is Kim Nunley and I’m a writer living in the San Francisco Bay Area. After screenwriting for nearly 5 years, I’ve decided to peel my butt from my computer chair, enlist the help of my close crew of friends and filmmakers and step behind the camera to shoot one of my own scripts, Sly Sylvester.

Sly Sylvester tells the story of Satchel, a thirty year-old metrosexual so desperate to find love that he pretends to own a kitty cat so that he can interact with the gorgeous pet sitter that has caught his eye. However, despite his preparation, his plan doesn’t go as he expects and he ends up in a debacle with his menacing landlord who believes that Satchel is breaking the lease’s strict no-pet rule.

The story is inspired by my own kitty cat, Peja, who to this day prefers to keep to himself and remains a recluse to visitors, often spawning a playful accusation from others that he doesn’t exist.

IN THIS TOGETHER

Unsociable cat aside, what's the real inspiration here? Well, in all honesty, we're huge movie nerds! And we're talking all shapes and sizes - we don't discriminate. Storytelling is what gets us excited.

We’re dedicated to making the best short film possible and we’d love to have you on our team. Making this film means the world to us. We're pumped! Every penny that you donate will all be used towards creating a better Sly Sylvester. Thank you for your support!
