"Magnetic"

Tweetable Logline:

On December 31st, the Earth will be destroyed. Everything you know will become nothing. Maybe it already has.


Elevator Pitch:

On December 31st, the Earth will be destroyed. Everything you know will become nothing. Maybe it already has. Alice, having failed in NYC, grabs her mixtapes, returns to her desolate hometown, and finds a job calling people to inform them their children have died. It seems unusual that the office is in an underground bunker under a sheep farm, but her life has drained her of all emotion. She has the sense that she's being watched and the tape with the "play me" label isn't quite right, but what if she is essential to the preservation of life on Earth?

Production Team:

co-Directors & co-Producers: Sophia Cacciola & Michael J. Epstein
starring: Allix Mortis

About the Production:

"Because the early part of the story focuses on failure and isolation, we've chosen to match the creative process to the film experience. Only one actor will be in the film. We are very interested in using the film to explore the effects of music on mood. So much of our early lives was shaped by listening to (and making) mixtapes, which play a major role in our character's life, guiding her experience and ultimately, playing a pivotal role in the film's plot. We'll be creating all of the music, which will span across a range of styles and genres." -- Sophia Cacciola

Current Status:

Pre-production.
