Long Distance”

Tweetable Logline:

The story of a relationship, told from the very beginning, developed over long distance

Elevator Pitch:

This is going to be a modern spin on a classic love tale. Boy
meets girl, girl and boy like each other, but boy and girl live 2,000
miles apart. There is something there. They both know it. They can’t
stop themselves. They have to see where it goes. But will it develop?
Will it grow? Will it last? Will it maintain? Will it be worth it?
Will it be good? What kind of shenanigans can they get themselves into
in the meantime?


Production Team:

Director: Paul Hart-Wilden
Writer/EP: Ted Barnes
Lead Actor/EP: Jeff Allen
Lead Actress: Taylor Cloyes
Editor: Jeff Behray

About the Production:

“Me and my co-creator Jeff have both been in long distance
relationships. Jeff’s experiences greatly influenced the concept and
the overall-ness, whereas mine helped fill in the holes. I love smart
and intelligent romantic comedies (500 Days of Summer and Silver Linings
Playbook being the two more current stars), yet there have been
shockingly few, and none remotely interesting, projects centered on long
distance. Our world is becoming more and more digital and remote,
these relationships are hugely common. It’s time for the concept to
have a champion.” — Ted Barnes
