Logline: When you’re 15, falling for an older girl is harder than heavy metal.
Elevator Pitch: “Jon & the Wolf” is a film about Jon, a 15-year-old outcast who becomes obsessed with Michelle, his beautiful 22-year-old guitar teacher, and gets a little crazy as he tries to win her love. The power a broken heart has over creating great music and the power music has to mend a broken heart is at the core of this coming-of-age tale that mixes reality and fantasy in order to tell a powerful, yet comedic story. “Jon & The Wolf” is for anyone that’s had a crush, a dream and got through their adolescence with the help of some great music.
About the Film: Initially inspired by Brian’s real experience taking guitar lessons as a teenager, this film came from a shared love of film and music and the power of both. The story captures the power of music in one’s life. Not just music as music, but music as emotion; as that rare form of art that can describe the indescribable. The indescribable feeling we want to capture with “Jon & the Wolf” is that of first love, first crush and first heartbreak and how oh so often they can be intertwined.
Current Status: Raising funds and planning to shoot in the fall.
