Project of the Day: Second Comedy from Sundance Alum Adam Bowers

Project of the Day: Second Comedy from Sundance Alum Adam Bowers

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.


Tweetable Logline:

The second feature-length comedy by Sundance alum Adam Bowers. A smart, (painfully) real comedy/romance.

Elevator Pitch:

A pizza cook who never left his college town, never made anything
of himself, meets the girl of his dreams, before realizing there’s a
huge roadblock to them being together. It’s a story about what you do
when you realize you might not do anything great with your life. It’s in
the vein of Woody Allen’s films, or the show LOUIE, but it’s something
wholly original.

Production Team:

Writer/Director/Editor: Adam Bowers (NEW LOW)
Producers: Andie Bolt & Roger Beebe
Director of Photography: Jay Keitel (SUN DON’T SHINE)

About the Production:

“I love low-budget, DIY filmmaking, and I love comedies, but I feel like
those two things rarely come together for artistic reasons. But I’m
interested in movies that are intentionally made this way, where the
film is made fresher and more distinct by its budgetary limitations,
rather than being made in spite of them.

“My first movie was made for $2,000, and it premiered at Sundance in
2010. I’m hoping to make something similar, a very personal
comedy/romance, but in a (slightly) bigger and (much) better way.” — Adam Bowers
