    A traumatic comedy about life, death, pie and death. Download my original Free Pie stageplay here: http://bit.ly/1kQYCZn SCRIPT IS FREE TO USE AND PERFORM. Just shoot me an email saying "yo". Keep up with the adventures at facebook.com/calebslain or twitter.com/calebslain •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Originally written as a stageplay under the tutelage of theater, film, and TV legend Tom Skerritt, I adapted Free Pie for the screen and partnered with producers Gabe Berghuis, Aaron B. Smith and the Gorilla Film Community in Grand Rapids to shoot the film in two nights. With three dedicated actors and a small crew, the filming took place in a puzzling house designed by a cathedral architect shortly before his death (the present homeowner being incapable of residing at the home, due to a mysterious allergy). Because the 10-minute film takes place in real-time, the entire team was able to experience the actors performing the script from start to finish as though they were watching a play. Given the short shooting schedule to execute the ambitious deep-focus look (the film was shot exclusively on a 18mm and 25mm Master Primes), the live performance of the film proved to be an invaluable way of creating a unified vision for the cast and crew. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Featuring "Non ho l'età" by Gigliola Cinquetti.

      In the autumn of 1998, a profound tragedy echoed through a small Michigan farming town and twisted the well laid plans of a young prodigy in strange and inspired ways. Click here to share Andy's story on Twitter: http://bit.ly/ZDdG50 ____________________ The Juggle & Cut Original Soundtrack is available for $2 here: bit.ly/Y0QGOt. The delivery format is high quality m4a files via Dropbox sent to your PayPal email address. Soundtrack features 5 tracks, and runs roughly 10 min. ____________________ Far and away in the chilling northern reaches of Michigan farm country lived 16-year-old Andy Phelps: an anomalous prodigy with a colorful resume. Andy juggled knives and fire for mass audiences, hand-made wood furnishings, thundered his motorcycle through the Midwest, captained his hockey team to a State Championship, and taught himself to unicycle and fire-breathe...all before turning seventeen. But late one autumn morning in 1998, Andy broke his neck and consequently lost the use of his hands and legs. Over a decade later, what should have been the last chapter in the life of a fabled prodigy became the first page of a new story, where against all odds he became the only known quadriplegic in an unexpected profession. ____________________ The process of bringing Juggle & Cut to life was one of the most challenging and ultimately rewarding projects I've ever been apart of; I hope you receive as much from hearing Andy's story as I did while assembling it. Many thanks to Andy's brother David Phelps, Eric Machiela, Eric Johnson, Wlad Marhulets, Adam Burd, Chad Terpstra, Seth Herman, and all of our incredibly generous Kickstarter supporters. We wouldn't be here now without every one of you.
