Posted December 3, 2017

LOGLINE: A recovering heroin addict and estranged brother, father, and son, moves back to his hometown for a fresh start. He must survive a tragic loss and overcome his addiction to see his girls again.

Six months ago, Duncan lost everything in Houston: tenured professor track, relationship with his bruised-up sister Jessie and faux posh parents Martha and Ronald, and visitation rights to see his girls on weekends. Now, Duncan’s commitment back home in Prosper, TX is a weekly routine of probation hearings, Narcotics Anonymous meetings, teaching at a local community college, and infant birthday parties. ‘Lily is Here’ is the story of a man that lives for nothing, and the hardest lesson learned through the most tragic family loss.

Casting and Crew Call for Scene from “Whiplash” (2014) [Austin, TX] #casting #filmcrew

Posted February 9, 2015

PROJECT TITLE: Whiplash (2014) Scene Production
CLASSIFICATION: Student
STATUS: Non-Union
CATEGORY: Student Scene Project
FORMAT: HD
DISTRIBUTION: Public access
WRITER: Damien Chazelle
DIRECTOR: Zachary Purcell
PRODUCTION COMPANY WEBSITE: http://vimeo.com/zacharypurcell
SHOOTING SCHEDULE: February 20–March 1
SHOOTING LOCATION: Austin, Texas

SYNOPSIS:

An in-depth filmed performance of one scene from the movie Whiplash (2014). It’s a great opportunity to flesh out the characters of the script in a thorough manner–taking the focus away from creating and planning an entire production and narrowing in on an in-depth performance of one scene. It’s a powerful moment in the movie and resonates emotionally even as a stand alone piece.

NOTE: This is not an attempt to remake the movie scene as closely as possible–rather an attempt accurately and emotionally bring the characters of the script to life. Preferably you have not seen the movie or even the trailer–we want to approach this with a fresh mindset!

CHARACTER BREAKDOWNS:

[ ANDREW ][ MALE ][ AGE: 18-25 ]
Andrew is an eager and determined music student at Shaffer Music Conservatory in New York–one of the best in the world. He is willing to do whatever it takes to become the best Jazz drummer of his generation.

[ FLETCHER ][ MALE ][ AGE: 40-60 ]
An alpha male if there ever was one. Fletcher is a dominant and imposing character–unapologetic to anyone he offends on his quest to mentor the next great musician.

My idea is about a girl that died because of her dad. All starts when the girl stays late after school and her dad thinks she’s doing something wrong. Whenever the girl gets home she sees that her dad is mad at her because she wasn’t at home at the time she was supposed to be. The dad starts to abuse her (not sexually). She runs away from home to the closest park and cries. It is late at night when her dad starts to look for her. Some bad guys are in the park and see her lonely and weak, so they kidnapped her. The guys abuse her again (now sexually) and the bad guys put drugs in her. She gets extremely sick and starts screaming for help. The bad dudes can’t control her and they start to beat her up. One of the bad guys kick her in the head and she goes unconscious. They think she’s dead and run away. A couple hours later her dad finds her and starts to cry. Her dad starts to talk to her about how bad he feels for what he did. He tells her that she is her most valuable treasure and that he never wanted something bad for her. He also tells her that he loves her as much as she can imagine. The last words he says are “forgive me, forgive me because I’m the one that got you into all the things I never wanted for you”. At that moment the girl wakes up and says, “It’s okay dad, I love you too”. With her last words hardly spoken she says “I know you only wanted the best for me, I love you dad, and please never doubt my love like you doubted me”… to be continued …end. -Gonzalo Ibarra
