How It All Started….
In the spring of 2014, FUTURE BOYFRIEND, a one-act play by A. Vincent Ularich, was accepted to the first annual science fiction one-act play festival in Los Angeles called SCI-FEST. Ron Morehouse and Emily Bell were asked to play the roles of Stuart and Kaylie and became fast friends. Soon after opening night, people started to comment on what a great concept for a TV series or film the show would be, and thus the idea to shoot it as a short film was born. Emily and Ron created Bell-House Productions and soon a fantastic team started to form. The talented crew included director Ben Rock (Dragon*Con Independent Film Festival Award Winner), George Feucht as the cinematographer (Emerging Cinematographer Award Winner), Tom Moser as Special Effects Supervisor and French Stewart (“Third Rock from the Sun” and “Mom”) as the cameo role of, “Friend.”
A Kickstarter campaign was launched with the goal of raising $10,000 to produce the short film. Thanks to the generous donations of 217 donors, the campaign raised well over the initial goal, finishing two weeks after its launch at $12,645
It has truly been a team effort, from SCI-FEST, to the Kickstarter backers, to every crew member and actor involved. We hope that the film is as much fun to watch as it was to make, and that it serves as a thank you to all those who made it possible.
