Here's your daily dose of an indie film in progress; at the end of the week, you'll have the chance to vote for your favorite.

In the meantime: Is this a movie you’d want to see? Tell us in the comments.

"The Aaron Cohens"

Tweetable Logline:

"The Social Network" Meets "Annie Hall"

Elevator Pitch:

Midlife Crisis. Some people get a sports car, a hair cut, or a divorce. I decided to make a film about people I met on Facebook with exact name. This is a film about men named Aaron Cohens and their mothers. It's created entirely by people named Aaron Cohen.

Production Team:

Produced and Directed by: Aaron Morris Cohen
Cinematography and Editing: Aaron Fisher Cohen
Written: Aaron Russel Cohen and Aaron Morris Cohen
Producer of Marketing and Distribution: Aaron Christopher Cohen
Music by: Young MC Aaron Cohen

About the Production:

I'm not a filmmaker, an actor, a comic, or writer. I just started friending Aaron Cohens on Facebook one day.

But, I've been fortunate. By friending Aaron Cohens, I've met 3 who do know how to make movies.
Aaron Cohen raps, tunes cars, and serves in the United States Army. Not surprisingly he's a neurosurgeon but he's also a bull rider. And then there are the mothers. They are proud, loud, nurturing, overbearing, cute and not-so-cute.

There are Aaron Cohens in Omaha, Juneau, and Spartanburg. There are 323 Aaron Cohens in Israel. Around the Aarons in 100 days.

Current Status:

We're in Production. Crowdsourcing and private fundraising to reach the promised land.
