Production Description

Casting a short teaser for the feature film "United Nations." Producer states: "'United Nations (UN)' is a re-imagining of 'Moby Dick.' It follows Liam, a distraught cinematographer who seeks refuge from his troubles on 'Foreign Affairs,' a tawdry reality travel series hosted by the charismatic but manipulative Abe. The story explores the relationship that develops as Liam is drawn into Abe’s all-consuming pursuit of a lost love. Reinterpreting Melville’s narrative structure, the tale is told entirely through found footage from the fictional show, behind-the-scenes, and Liam’s video journal. The short film (which will be under five minutes) will showcase the found footage filming style, improvised acting approach, distinctive production style, and entertainment potential of the feature."
