Film (short) by Subterranean Films LLC / Dir. Robert Haufrecht (Drama, Fantasy, Romance and Short) Producer Two lonely people, with personal baggage, on separate evenings out - on the same street in Greenwich Village, she with a friend, he alone, end up on the subway platform where an old Eastern European woman plays rueful accordion music (she becomes a muse/cupid). They get into the same subway car and from there surreptitiously observe each other and submerge themselves in romantic fantasies (black and white). They never speak and she, just before exiting the train, has one last 'fantasy kiss' on the train, ending their 'romance.' Haunting accordion music and subway imagery add a fine subtlety to the romance and mystery.
Holding the Summer Sun
Film (short) by Specific Somewhere Productions | Dir. Richard J. Sullivan (Comedy, Drama and Short) Screenwriter/Director/Producer Three New Jersey friends, Kevin (Ryan P.A. Walsh), Pete (Eddie Reynolds), and Brandon (Chris Demchak), are driving, but they are late for their destination. They drive, they talk, they argue, they laugh, but underneath is the question on all three of their minds: where are they going - or not going - in life?
The Last Time
Film (short) by Specific Somewhere Productions | Dir. Richard J. Sullivan (Comedy, Drama and Short) Screenwriter/Director/Producer/Editor James (Ryan P.A. Walsh) is a 25-year old screenwriter, living with his best friend Marc (Eddie Reynolds) in New York City. Ever the "tortured writer," James is newly sober and suffering from writer's block on his new screenplay. After a run-in - and night together - with his ex-girlfriend, Ava (Dana Sullivan), James begins drinking again. He attempts to use his demons to break through his writer's block and finish his screenplay - and maybe his relationship with Ava - for the last time. [www.imdb.com/title/tt2398332]
