Our new short film MATCH.CON (Working title) is scheduled to begin shooting on AUG. 6TH!
In conjunction with ARETE Living Arts and sponsored by Extra Fancy Restaurant.
Loui Alexandrae Terrier has penned a touching and tragicomic new digital short.
MATCH.CON is a dramedy - with a touch of magic realism. It is the story of Frank and Gloria, two schizophrenics
who venture out of their insulated lives - on their first internet dates. They both neglect to take their medications. Frank meets up with Trina a clone of Ginger from Gilligan's Island. Gloria meets up with Lawford, a disingenuous older man. We follow Frank and Gloria's outrageous dates fall to pieces - no thanks in part to audio hallucinations - their champagne bubbles and beer suds constantly run commentary on their dates. In the ruble of their failed dates,
Frank and Gloria make a connection, and the stars seem to align for them.
We are very pleased to be working with a fantastic cast:
DT Sheridan - FRANK
Charlie LeGrice - GLORIA
Debargo Sanyal - TRINA
Lotus Huynh - JEN
Gregory Carey - LAWFORD
Irungu Mutu - JACK
We are shooting in Brooklyn and a studio in Manhattan.
Fahrenheit is PLEASED to team up with a new Brooklyn Indie Production - BIG MAGNET PRODUCTIONS.

A Good Friday: A short film by Loui Terrier.
Produced by George Aliperti
Cinematography by Marc Jeff Schirmer

"We never know who will change the course of our lives."
It is the story of the events which occur on the day a hospitalized teenage girl’s facial bandages are removed. As it happens to be Good Friday, the teenage girl’s mother, and the hospital have arranged for an entertainer, dressed as an Easter Bunny, to be on hand to mitigate and cheer up the girl. Not surprisingly, the girl is freaked out by her facial cuts and bruises. She overreacts and begins to wallow in self pity.
When the teenage girl tells her mother “.... I’d rather be dead...” the Bunny becomes infuriated and crosses a professional line by lifting off his Easter Bunny mask to reveal his monstrously burnt and disfigured face. Harvey, the disfigured man, chides the girl for her overblown hysteria and self pity. Harvey flees the room and sulks when it sinks in that he has also lost his own sense of proportion, and has probably burnt a bridge.
The teenager, mother, and nurse are unnerved but they all come to realize that her scars are minor in comparison to the entertainer’s permanent disability. The mother understands Harvey’s intentions and comes to his aide - offering more than reassuring words. The film prods us to thinks about what are the important things, relationships, and moral values within our own lives.
Shot on location in the Bronx fall of 2010, and posted in spring of 2011.
The film is now being submitted to international film festivals .
