About

Who We Are

Our name is Big Whopper Films, and what we want to do is make funny movies, that are inspirational, and thought provoking, as well.

Our film company started back in 2005 as Shenanaganz Films, then a group of college aged friends filming funny shorts with a hand held still digital camera. As the years passed, we gained recognition amongst our friends and on you tube and gained a mid-sized following of college aged kids. We wanted more. We wanted to make movies. Over time, Shenanganz split up and Jay DiMare formed Big Whopper Comedy, after he was given his nickname for an event that took place in a dirty, crowded subway station under Boston, involving his face, a giant fan, and lots of dust, (Made up of dead skin of millions of travellers), producing lines down his face like a flame broiled hamburger. 

Big Whopper Comedy took to the bars in the stand up comedy circuit to make a name for himself, writing jokes, short screenplays, and gearing up for his own projects along the way. In 2008, Jay teamed up with Vito Jennette in Michigan to write a feature called "The Second Coming", a lighter look, at the way Jesus Christ changed the world. Set in 2008, and taking place in a Michigan high school, we have a compelling story of a cloned adolescent Christ, asked to die for people's sins once again, only this time, he doesn't have time to learn how to use his powers of miracles, and sort of just has to learn by doing.

This marked the birth of Big Whopper Films, which then took on the task of writing and filming the feature length project "The Single Life" A story written by Jay DiMare about one man who loses his way...and leaves love up to fate.

About The Single Life

The Single Life came about in 2006 as Jay DiMare's way of learning how to write screenplays. In 2010, Jay decided it was time to re-write the single life, as he now had a feature and many short screenplays under his belt. Jay wanted The Single Life to be a compelling, comedy filled, inspirational, and to put it simply, a great story, with lots of laughs. So Jay took the better half of 2010 to put everything he had into making "The Single Life" everything Shenanagnz Films wanted it to be when they were just dreamers....

After bringing in the best and brightest of his friends, we set out to get a cast. And we searched high and low for the best possible actors and actresses we could find. We have taken The Single Life to new heights, by assembling a shining cast and crew. I believe they are the stars of the future.

Shooting began on July 1st 2011 on a shoestring budget and we're cruising right along getting amazing action, and very FUNNY footage, and we even shot some of those "inspirational" moments as well.

In short, this film is about a man, who is lost in the ways of love and life. He attempts to take his own life after his girlfriend leaves him for another woman and drives the nail in the coffin of his love life. He falls into a coma, in which he relives a series of moments that took place in his past, learning something from each one as he hops from flashback to flashback. When he comes to in his own home, he has a new reason to live, to drop his own love life into the hands of fate, and help other lonely people like him find companionship through his online "Rent-a-friend" service called "THE SINGLE LIFE"...

Your part in our film...

And that's where you come in. We feel that kickstarter is good for two things. One, we get to work at funding our way to the end of principle photography and get us into post production, and it's also great to get you, the fans, involved with this project and welcome you as part of the team.

With your help, The Single Life, can inspire the masses in MORE theaters, giving our actors MORE exposure, propelling them to the levels of recognition they deserve for the GREAT job they have put in ALREADY, MORE exposure for the film, MORE exposure = a great sense of accomplishment felt by all involved INCLUDING YOU!!! Your help will allow this film to reach MORE festivals, MORE people, and inspire so MANY minds in the mysterious ways the universe brings LOVE to you over and over and over again. You will also be responsible for propelling, and helping these actors and actresses reach their goals as professionals. And did I mention, Great Prizes from the cast and crew of "The Single Life", see that column about prizes over there.....>....
