Here are my predictions!!!
I’m starting something new. Each week I’m going to pick a cool movie or something along the lines of “film” to showcase on my site! I love seeing all these awesome movie concepts when I browse on Kickstarter. This week I picked Alex & Ash by Alex Dobrenko.
What is it?
ALEX AND ASH is an independent feature length comedy. Alex is a software engineer by day and aspiring historian by night. Ash is a waitress with an art degree. Together their relationship has a healthy equilibrium until they begin receiving pieces of a jigsaw puzzle via the mail. As the pieces grow, Alex & Ash become obsessed with what the puzzle means, gradually becoming more disconnected from the real world and simultaneously suspicious and wary of each other and their relationship.
Here’s an insight at all involved with the film:
Alex Dobrenko (ALEX) is a rising talent in Austin, Texas’s acting and improv scene. A wit with a degree from Brown University, he’s a natural for a piece built on timing and humor. Like the Alex of the film, (and like half the population of Austin) he’s an over-educated 9-5 employee with an eye for something bigger.
Ashley Spillers (ASHLEY) is an actress who’s quickly making a name for herself in independent and mainstream films, including THE BOUNCEBACK and Christmas 2013’s LAST VEGAS, which includes Morgan Freeman, Robert DeNiro, Michael Douglas and Kevin Kline.
Hugo Vargas-Zesati (ROB) was raised a classically trained bullfighter by his mother in Northern Mexico. He inexplicably left his lucrative career and used his blood money to pursue the life of a restaurateur. His first establishment was the very successful Thai/James Bond-themed restaurant named “Shaken Not Stir-Fried.” After 3 years of acclaimed success he closed the doors of his establishment forever. He is now retired and resides in Austin, TX.
Sam Eidson (DIRK) made his trade in the Salt Mines of Northern Virginia till he moved to Austin Texas to seek his fortune in silk factories his father left behind to him.
Kakii Keenan is a long time Austin-based art director, who will lend her talent and ingenuity to set design and props.
Steve Mims is an award-winning filmmaker and film lecturer at the University of Texas at Austin. The New York Times called his short AUNT HALLIE: “A treasure…which belongs on everybody’s list of the top-10 funniest films ever made.” His acclaimed documentary INCENDIARY: THE WILLINGHAM CASE, (co-director/editor) won the 2011 Innocence Network Journalism Award, the SXSW Louis Black Award and the 2013 Media Award from the Texas Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty.
This movie seems like such an awesome idea! I’ll definitely help Kickstart this! You guys should too!!! Do it! 14 days left to help.
