Had a great time at my first Film Festival Flix event, a screening & after party for the winning new indie comedy "Love, Sex & Missed Connections" directed by Eric Kissack & written by & starring Kenny Stevenson. The ambitious low budget movie rich in humor & talent tells the story of Neal (Kenny Stevenson) trying to get his life back together after walking in on his best friend Allan (Avi Rothman) & girlfriend Christine (Julie Mitchell) sleeping together. His scheming wisecracking pals George (Alex Enriquez) & Barry (Shane Elliot) encourage him to hook up with emotionally vulnerable, sexy hungry women he meets off the internet thru the missed connections ads on craigslist. Joining in on the amorous adventures are Neal's offbeat funny neighbor Bryce (Abraham Smith), Jane (Dorien Davies) & her best friend Cassandra (Samantha Klein). Neal's sister Jillian & brother-in-law Daren are played by Stephanie Escajeda & Scott Beehner. Most of the appealing cast have performed with comedy improv groups like The Groundlings & The Upright Citizens Brigade & the film was shot over weekends totaling about 20 days and for about $25,000 via two kick starter fund raisers - that is what I call a movie miracle!
