PROJECT TITLE: Burning Daylight
CATEGORY: Short Film
DISTRIBUTION: Festival circuit
SHOOTING SCHEDULE: Expected Feb 2015
SHOOTING LOCATION: Los Angeles, CA
“Burning Daylight” (working title) is the story of Ozias “Ozzie” Young –– a sarcastic, jaded writer somewhere between his quarter and mid-life crisis. Recently kicked out of his living situation, Ozzie cons his way into working at a nearby retirement community for room and board. The know-it-all writer at first clashes with a wise, old tenant named Carl, but sure enough, an unlikely friendship is soon struck. Together, Carl and Ozias are set on a path through moments that study priorities, choice, regret and the story of life.
Ozias Young (lead): Late 20’s/Early 30’s – He is a jaded writer who “lives for the moment” to produce great writing, but through a relationship with Carl, changes.
Rob Young: – Ozias’ older brother, he is responsible and caring, but his brother has stayed on his couch too many times…
Fay: 40’s female, Allison Janney-esque – She is Ozias’s boss at the nursing home.
We are also looking for a nursing home in Los Angeles that is open to a 5 day on location shoot that has interested nursing home residents in being in the film.
