“I Put A Hit On You”
Tweetable Logline:
A lo-fi thriller about a brokenhearted woman that teams up with her ex-boyfriend to stop the hitman she accidentally hired to kill him.
Elevator Pitch:
After her marriage proposal to Ray is rejected, Harper drunkenly posts an ad online offering to trade her engagement ring for Ray’s death. When a man calls and says he’ll do it, she panics.

Fearful of what she might have done, Harper runs to Ray’s apartment in the middle of the night to warn him. As they try to stay calm and deal with this bizarre situation like regular people, they’re forced to confront the downfall of their relationship and figure out where it all went wrong before the hitman takes away any chance of them ever getting back together.
Production Team:
Writers/Directors: Dane Clark & Linsey Stewart
Producers: Mike MacMillan & Jordan Gross
Editor: Jonathan Eagan
Cinematographer: Daniel Grant
About the Production:
Linsey & Dane asked each other, ‘What would piss you off so much that you’d momentarily want me dead? And what if a hitman took you up on that offer and you didn’t know how to stop him?” We fell in love with this idea and developed it as a lo-fi romantic thriller that explores the complicated ebbs and flows of a relationship. One we could execute at a low budget level without being stagnant and boring. Then we promised ourselves we’d make it this year and not wait for anyone to give us permission but humbly ask for help.
