“Dick and Bob”

Tweetable Logline:

Two bumbling crooks try to knock over an Asian BBQ joint, but end up having an existential crisis.

Elevator Pitch:

Dick & Bob are friends, partners in crime and – unfortunately – the worst crooks in history. Tired of petty theft, Bob is ready to take their operation to the next level, and has an Asian BBQ set as their next target. Dick doesn’t care much for crime, but he’ll do anything for his best friend…in the world.

Production Team:

Director: Brad Roller
Producers: Jason Gonzales & Jesse Einstein
Writer: David Hemphill
Cast: Scott L. Schwartz (“Oceans 11”) & David Hemphill

About the Project:

“This Kickstarter campaign will fund the production of the short film “Dick & Bob”. It’s an original heist comedy, but at heart it’s really about the friendship of two guys. We’re passionate about telling captivating stories through interesting dialogue. We all have experience in film, but we come from a theatrical background, so dialogue is our specialty. ‘Dick & Bob’ will also be the jumping off point for our production company, Project Films – with two more projects to be completed by year’s end. We make good stuff. Get excited.” — Jesse Einstein
