Guber

Logline: The trials and tribulations of a Los Angeles ride-share driver.

Elevator Pitch:

You always hear about the drunks and jerks in the back seats of an Uber, but there are SO many others stories. “Guber” is about poet/driver, Jonathon, and the specific ways he deals with the true idiosyncrasies of Los Angeles.

Production Team:

Director – Nell Teare (“Eve and Steve,” “Never Stop,” “Sweet Talk,” “Anton in Show Business”)

Cinematographer – Julia Swain (“Jilted,” “Flesh and Blood,” “Women of Light”)

Jay Lech-Lynas – Creator (“Lovers,” “NightWalk”)

About the Film:

I’ve driven over 8,000 ride-share trips, and I have seen some things. I want to share my observations with the world. It only takes a minute for people to reveal themselves in this strange, new, intimate cultural experience. As a driver, I have become privy to some outrageous scenarios. At the end of the day, we are all just looking to share ourselves with each other.

Current Status: We have shot the pilot and have already raised almost $5,000 in 48 hours on Indiegogo.
