After hours of chugging away on Premiere and scoring the film, I have a final cut of Happy Birthday Carol that I'll be sending out to film festivals for the 2021 season! I am super excited.
I am so thrilled to have had the opportunity to make this short film for the Actor's Lab this year! We had a few restraints: Film on a smartphone, include "Lucky 7," and keep it under three minutes. It was tough but we all showed up for it and made some cool work. This shorter version is a work in progress and I am so excited to release the final version this year at film festivals!
Who is Sandra? Well that was definitely a working title... Sandra Coping has morphed into Happy Birthday Carol. It's a quarantine story about 7 roommates and their coping skills during these trying times. A dark comedy? An uplifting tragedy? It will be premiering later this January at The Actor's Lab's LabFest 2021 Film Festival. There is a 3 minute time limit on that festival which makes it super challenging! It will be a working version of the film. The final version of the film will be premiering later this year at various film festivals.
