One Last Call - Premiere Next Week
"One Last Call," the film is set to premiere at the historic Royal Oak Main Art Theater 7pm on April 27th, 2011. "One Last Call" is an art house film with Lynchian appeal. It is a story based in redemption where a young man, Tom, and his newly found friend, Dodge, venture out on a night’s binge that leads them to their final temptation in the young woman known only as Red Dress. In giving into thered herring they are taken on a journey they never expected, and their road ends on the night’s one last call.
"One Last Call" is an Indie feature-short film, and it is in the genre of the supernatural thriller. The production is considered a feature-short; a short film that is between 21 to 60 minutes in length."One Last Call" is recognized in its category for being a short film at the level equal to that of a feature length film and doing so with no budget. The production utilized nine locations, studios (both film and music), professional equipment, Michigan talent agencies, local entertainment acts and businesses, their own soundtrack and music video, with all above-the-line and below-the-line roles being 100% Michiganders.
The concept of "One Last Call" was born in 2009 from the mind of the screenplay writer’s daughter. Inspired by her daughter’s story, she developed the screenplay in conjunction with her Masters Program for Entertainment Business at Full Sail University. "One Last Call" soon became a collaboration of over 40 people on its team, and with close to one hundred Michigan extras. Being a no budget indie short film meant the team had to utilize what they had along with the support of several generous sponsors, which included; Benito’s Pizza, Coca Cola’s Fuse, Commune Night Club of Royal Oak, Valentine Vodka of Ferndale, and NVIDIA.
