Writer/Director Mike Messier and Producer/Actor Robert John Canelli recently teamed to produce “So, You’re the Guy?” with DP/editor Tim Labonte and fellow Actor Bradley Rhodes with a soundtrack by Tony Caramadre. Robert aka Bobby secured a great location for us in New Haven, Connecticut for principle filming with the film edit and score being completed in Woonsocket and Warwick, Rhode Island.
A recent interview with Mike has more details: So, You’re the Guy? interview
Here is the teaser and poster for the new short film, currently being sent to festivals:
Support the “So, You’re the Guy? Film Festival Program”
We’d love to share So, You’re the Guy? with as many people as possible to advance the careers of both cast and crew. But, damn it, there are those annoying film festival entry fees… They aren’t that much at first, but they do add up. So, we are calling upon you, GUYS, and GALS…to help !
Support our “So, You’re the Guy? Film Festival Program”, in which you lend your support (aka ‘money’!) towards the entry fees into top Film Festivals for our film and we kindly thank you (and/or your business) right here with a little, old fashioned “shot out”.
Any donation amount is accepted (to note: the average short film entry fee for a film of this length is about $30.00) . Of course, any amount that is more than generous and greatly appreciated!
You can paypal any amount you’d like to donate to the cause to ” firstname.lastname@example.org ” as a friend/family member with the notation “GUY” (or something like that) and we will put the funds to festival entries and, if requested, send you the FilmFreeway confirmation email as proof of your much appreciated support in our project as well as a a sneak peak preview link of the already finished 11 minute film for your private enjoyment!
That’s right, ladies and gentlemen.. unlike some other ‘filmmakers’, we are NOT asking you to give us your hard earned money to support a film that may (or may not) ever get actually made… we’ve ALREADY finished So, You’re the Guy?, so now we are asking for your help to MARKET the film to the established film festival world!
Writer/Director/Producer Mike Messier has plenty of experience in this film festival world, having won some 28 film and TV awards over the years, (Mike’s IMDB page) , and running his own Avalonia Festival – a FilmFreeway Top 100 Best Rated Festival among filmmakers.
We will list your name and/or business name (with your website hyperlinked if you like, (unless you wish to remain anonymous) and the Festival (s) associated with your generous sponsorship gift right here…
With our sincere thanks!,
So, You’re the Guy?
