Written / Directed / Shot / Edited / Produced by Dominic Mercurio
I made this film as a crew of 1 back in 2008 when i was 19 years old, and look back on it as one of the experiences that taught me the most about filmmaking. The actors and I shot this film all around the SF Bay Area (mainly in Redwood City, San Mateo, Palo Alto, & San Carlos) over the course of about 6 months with a budget of virtually nothing. I rented a theater at The Aquarius Theater in Palo Alto to premiere it to a packed theater as a midnight show on December 5th 2008.
This is my first feature length film, and is shot guerilla style (we have some great stories). I hope you enjoy watching it and heres a brief synopsis:
Laurence, a senior in high school, is given a simple task from his mom: deliver a "Get Well Soon" Cake to his sick grandma. After throwing the cake in his 1970 VW van's built-in fridge he sets out on his journey but is quickly distracted by his friends. His day begins to spiral into a crazy adventure with his good friends, but will he manage to still deliver the cake in one piece?
