Trailer for Philadelphia Filmmakers’ “The Burning House”

Philadelphia filmmakers Scott Ross and Karl Beyer (www.scottandkarl.tv) have just released a trailer for their original comedy joint “The Burning House” (set to premiere in 2013). Wuzzat, you ask? Well, it’s an 18-minute short satirical film about:

“A depressed 20-something aficionado of one-of-a-kind vintage goods [who] writes into a popular blog with a list of possessions that he would hypothetically take with him in the event of a house fire. When his house catches fire in a freak accident that very night, he flees with nothing but his armload of luxury items, and must use them to survive on the hard streets of Philadelphia.”

The film was created with help from a fully local cast and crew and shot on location in Philadelphia and the surrounding suburbs. Lead actor Sean Close has made a name for himself with dramatic and comedic roles at local theaters including the Quintessence Theater Group, Arden Theater, South Camden Theater Company, and Iron Age Theater.  The cast also includes Abigail Bruley (Nielsen, Down the Show) and Rose Luardo (Comedy Dreamz).

Whoa! Sounds interesting! Let’s watch:

Like what you saw? You can donate to the Kickstarter campaign they’ve launched to put the finishing touches on it.  The additional funding will go towards professional audio mixing, sound design, and an original choral and piano score by composer Evan Younger of the band Miracles of Modern Science. And their page was selected as a Staff Pick on Kickstarter.com, so you know it’s legit.
