THE STORY: A Musing is an independent short film we’re producing in the Seattle area. There are two pivotal characters in this short story, Pete Matthews (The Writer) and the Clerk (The Muse). Pete is a writer struggling with his loss of creativity and hasn’t penned a word in three years. Pete is suffering from the all too familiar “writer’s block” and needs to find a cure.
Pete pays a visit to his literary agent “Bill Skinner” and after a brief meeting, Bill presses Pete to find his muse. Pete sets out to find his inspiration in the most common of places. After nightly visits to his local liquor mart, Pete is convinced that the Clerk is his muse. Will Pete find success from his new found inspiration or has his hope and desperation created a false sense of encouragement?
THE LOCATION: A Musing will be filmed in Seattle, Washington where the rolling green hills intersect to a bustling metropolis known as the Emerald City.
