Project of the Day: ‘On Hold’

Project of the Day: 'On Hold'

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.

“On Hold” 

Tweetable Logline: Four people. Waiting. Each for something special. One of them could be you.

Elevator Pitch: The film deals with the role of waiting in daily routine and life in general by observing four people, each of whom is on hold for something special. They wait for the better, the worse, the unexpected or just the unavoidable.

Production Team:

Director-producer: George Tsirogiannis
Writers: George Tsirogiannis, Darío Acebales
Starring: Stefania Kriezi, Giorgos Nikopoulos, Haris Trasanis, Andromahi Pouliasi
Music: Deadfile
Cinematographer: Petros Antoniadis 
Production Manager: John Nikolettos (Protasis Production, production services in Greece for “Captain Corelli’s Mandolin” and “My Life in Ruins”)

About the Production: I decided to write and direct about this theme because I believe that waiting is a sign of life. It is a very important process. It is also a recurring one, since we always wait for something, no matter if it’s tiny or huge. Waiting for something means admitting there is hope it will come sometime, and hoping means you are alive.

Current Status: A crowdfunding campaign runs on Indiegogo, from January 26 to February 26.
