Marriage. In Short. on

Marriage In Short: a film series on the comedy of matrimony.

Look. I love film. I love marriage. However, I usually don’t love marriage in films. Usually if a film is about a marriage, its depressing. Then someone gets murdered. Or worse.

I have finished the first film in the series: Make Like a Dog. Now I need help making the rest. The plan is to make 5 more shorts with the same actors playing different couples, in different decades, dealing with different socio-political issues within their marriages.

And hey! – I am not talking about films about people getting married. I am talking about films about marriage. After the honeymoon. In the thick of it. But I am not bagging on other films… Eyes Wide Shut is one of my favorite films of all time and who doesn’t love Gone Girl? Blue Valentine? But when thinking about my making my first film I knew that it had to be about marriage and that it had to be funny. And dramatic. Similar to Togetherness or Raising Arizona. Because that is how my marriage is: it’s everything all at once. I mean, who really wants to sit down for hours and face the infinitely complex and intricate nature of marriage without at least laughing a little bit? Am I right?

So help us make the next one: A Tribulation! Set in 2024 about a couple of doomsday preppers who completely disagree about how the world will end but completely agree that sh*t is definitely gonna hit the fan.
