Producer David Guy Levy’s directorial debut, “A Love Affair of Sorts,” will be released by Paladin, with plans to have it play on the festival circuit in early 2011, followed by a theatrical release soon thereafter.
Levy stars in his own film as alongside Lili Bordan as two strangers who meet in a bookstore. The man catches the woman shoplifting, while she catches him filming her with his Flip Camera. The two embark on tentative romance that day, but nothing is quite as it seems.
Paladin CEO Mark Urman spoke of Levy in a press release: “It is extremely exciting working with David, whose understanding of film as art form and enterprise is both inspired and inspiring. Not only has he done something very modern and innovative with ‘Love Affair’ – which we believe is the first-ever feature made entirely with the Flip Camera – he has also done something surprisingly sweet and classically romantic.”
Levy, whose company Periscope Entertainment produced the film, added: “When Mark told me he was interested in being a part of this film, bringing his decades of experience with him, I couldn’t have been more excited. I’ve admired and followed his career since the very beginning of THINKFilm and have nothing but confidence in how he and his team at Paladin will handle this picture.”
