Project of the Day: Living the 'Easy Life'

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.

“Easy Life”

Tweetable Logline:

An optimistic, stoner, valet driver dreams of one day living an EASY LIFE.

Elevator Pitch:

Would you submit a video in hopes of getting into a reality TV show?

Matty is a valet driver who feels that his only way out of his “miserable life” (smoking weed and parking cars all day) is by getting into a show called “EASY LIFE”. Will Matty make the cut? will his ex-girlfriend want him to stay after finding out she is pregnant? will his ex-girlfriend’s step sister ever tell him that she is also pregnant with his baby? Will life ever get any easier? You can help us find out what happens by donating to our kickstarter campaign.

About the Production:

“What influences most people? Celebrity life, it always has been except in today’s society it’s hardly ever winning a Nobel prize that makes you ‘cool,’ or being the king of a nation. We seek people’s ‘likeness,’ being just good at something is hardly ever enough, personality is what we want, a bad-ass, rocker who looks cool. Matty the protagonist of EASY LIFE is a college drop out, stonner, not smart at all, would never win anything more than a beer pong contest, likable guy; the ideal candidate for a reality show. This is the guy that I wanted to explore.” — Enrique Caldera
