I'm in pre-production on my next film.
The film is called "Fix", and it's based on an extraordinary true and personal story. It's about brothers. It's about drugs. It's about love. It's about Los Angeles. It's a road movie, a documentary, a drama and a comedy. The treatment is posted below.
Screenplay by Tao Ruspoli and Jeremy Fels
Story by Tao Ruspoli and Paul Duran
Produced by Nat Dinga
Starring Shawn Andrews, Olivia Wilde, Megalyn Echikunwoke, and Dedee Pfeiffer
Preliminary mood shots:
Filmmaker’s note: This film is based partly on real events and real people and will be shot entirely first person by the actors in the film using a variety of hi-def, digital and video formats. The filmmakers are the characters in this hybrid narrative/documentary and the finished film will reflect their personal journey with stylized editing, music and direct interviews with the people in the film, all encompassing a single 24-hour period.
This film is the first road movie shot all in one city (Los Angeles, a microcosm of our post-world, is one of the stars of the film, and Leo is a modern day Odysseus, traversing its multiple worlds)
