The Grasshopper

Logline: A contractor ditches work to spend the afternoon honeymooning with his wife in their suburban paradise home.

Elevator Pitch: 
A darker and more adult version of "Ferris Bueller's Day Off." Instead of a kid ditching class, it's a middle-aged suburban man ditching work. It's about how the older we get, the harder it is to run away from responsibility. The script was a Sundance Labs second round finalist and is the feature debut of Chicago-based director Brad Bischoff.

Production Team:
Director - Brad Bischoff
Producer - Malik Bader
Producer - Frank V Ross
Producer - Olivia Curry
Producer - Phil O'Neil
Cinematographer - Jake Zalutsky

About the Film:
I grew up in the suburbs where all of my schools are on the same street, like a block from each other. Then there's a golf course behind my house. Growing up, I was made to believe that these are the steps in life. After this, you go to college and get a degree, then you get a job. Then after that you get a house. Then one day you wake up and you're 45, but you don't feel any different from what you've always felt. This film is a man coming to terms with that awakening.

Current Status: Fundraising.
