Congratulations! Why did you make your film?
We met doing Future Boyfriend as a short play at the 1st Annual Science Fiction Play Festival in Los Angeles, which is now in its third year. Soon after opening night, people started to comment on what a great concept for a TV series or film the show would be and we decided to shoot it as a short. We launched a Kick Starter and raised our money in the first 5 days. The whole thing has been a whirlwind and there is a whole lot more to come from Future Boyfriend.
Imagine I’m a member of the audience. Why should I watch this film?
Future Boyfriend is a romantic comedy with a sci-fi twist. It has a unique message about love and what someone will do to see that love fulfilled. It has rather unique circumstances on which these themes are played out on. You think you are watching a simple romantic comedy and then we turn it on its head.
How do personal and universal themes work in your film?
This film touches on the theme of love, specifically the boundaries of love. It asks if a person should risk everything for their loved one, even if it means that person would no longer know them? It also touches on the subject of age and love. Are we ever too old to be loved romantically?
How have the script and film evolved over the course of their development and production?
Well, Future Boyfriend started out as a 25 minute short play. Our writer, A. Vincent Ularich, had the daunting task of trimming it down to a 12 minute movie. We went through lots of drafts and edit sessions to make sure the story still had the same impact as the play, but without sacrificing anything for time sake.
What type of feedback have you received so far?
It's been amazing. We were listed as one of the top 8 shorts that were shown at Tribeca by PopOptiq as well as one of the most notable films by starpulse.com. We've just started our festival run, but after premiering at Tribeca we have screened at Sci-Fi London, DWF, Filmquest, and a big one we can't wait to announce soon.
What are you looking to achieve by having your film more visible on www.wearemovingstories.com?
We're honored to have the opportunity to share a story that moves people and are looking forward to spreading it to many others via wearmovingstories.com. We'd also love to investigate the possibility of taking Future Boyfriend to the next level as a series or feature film and are looking forward to speaking with interested parties who may see the film.
Who do you need to come on board (producers, sales agents, buyers, distributors, film festival directors, journalists) to amplify this film’s message?
Directors, buyers and/or writers
What type of impact and/or reception would you like this film to have?
We love the response we've received from audiences so far. Many have said Future Boyfriend made them both laugh and cry. We hope to continue making people laugh and feel moved by a love that knows no space-time continuum boundaries.
What’s a key question that will help spark a debate or begin a conversation about this film?
What would you do if you had the chance to change your destiny?
What are the key creatives developing or working on now?
We are all looking to bring Future Boyfriend to either a scripted episodic TV show, or a feature film. The response for our little movie has been overwhelming and we've been approached by a number of people who interested in helping us develop it further!
We are also developing a webseries we hope to shoot later this summer.
