Project of the Day: 'The Cover-Up' For the Crime He Didn't Commit

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 Cover-Up”

Tweetable Logline:
“The Cover-Up” is a comedy about a guy who learns in matters of the heart the truth will set you free, if it doesn’t land you in jail first!

Elevator Pitch:
Buy my movie! Buy my movie! *ahem* I’m really excited to tell you about my comedy feature I’ve been developing for a few years now called “The Cover-Up”. It’s a comedy about a love lorn young man who in an attempt to win back the ‘girl who got away’ ends up having to lie to her about a crime he didn’t even commit, and risk it all when he decides to tell her the truth. We’ve got a great team assembled. Very exciting cast and creatives. Just a couple weeks from camera now. Buy my movie? : D

Production Team:
Director: Eric Boychuk
Producers: Jonathan M. Endo & Simon Yang
Co-Producers: Javier Badillo & Matther Tingey
Director of Photography: Andy Hodgson

About the Production:
“I wanted to make this film because I think it will be funny. hah. But really, I do think it should be funny. I really love comedy. I love the reaction you can get out of audiences who are watching it and the real chemistry that can’t be denied when you and the person beside you laugh about the same thing. So much information is shared in that one instant laugh.

Also I really love growing in the craft of filmmaking. I want this to be my first film, but certainly not my last.” -Eric Boychuk

Current Status:
We’re two weeks away from shooting. Casted. Locations locked. Filling the last few crew and logistic holes. And fundraising like our movie depends on it!
