Project of the Day: ‘Temps’

Project of the Day: 'Temps'

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: An indie romantic comedy about a ski bum temp worker who meets his match in the form of a down to earth career girl.

Elevator Pitch: The story follows Jefferson (Grant Rosenmeyer, “The Royal Tenenbaums”), a ski-bum temp worker, whose singular joy comes from an annual excursion to the slopes with fellow vagabond Curtis (Reid Ewing, “Modern Family”). But when Jefferson falls for Stephanie (Lindsey Shaw, “Pretty Little Liars”), a down-to-earth ambitious go-getter, he’s forced to re-evaluate his priorities. Eden Sher (“the Middle”) plays Stephanie’s best friend and Chris Bauer (“True Blood”) plays Jefferson’s dad.

Production Team:
Ryan Sage – Director / Editor
Jason Duplissea – Producer
Tim Bennett-Huxtable – Writer 
Stephen Sheridan – Director of Photography

About the film: For me, this is a film about the relationship where you first discover what it really means to care about someone. The one where you have to have it and lose it to understand why you need it or want it. It’s an age old adage but this telling of it feels very fresh and very modern to me, not to mention, it’s just flat out funny. From the first read it just got stuck in my head. I couldn’t wait to get on set with some actors and really bring this story to life.

Current Status: Fundraising / Post-production
