Film Experience: Kiana, a New Challenge
It’s March 2013. My buddy Hallam Drury from Australia hits me up and says he’s got an idea for a short film. Not only that, but he’s managed to rope our friend Luke Sheehan into the project. Obviously, my interest was easily piqued.
The premise for Kiana is as follows: “What if life’s most natural decision became its hardest?” Kiana is a short film that explores a young couple’s decision to have a child and its unintended consequences on everyone around them.
The guys put in a lot of hard to work get the movie funded. But they never forgot to have fun along the way. Although Luke had some prior experience to filming, these were uncharted waters for Hallam. Nevertheless, he faced the challenge head on. I showed my support for the project by sharing it on Facebook, but I got more actively involved when the need for props arose. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have a good time contributing to this awesome project. And one of the coolest surprises came when Hallam sent me this message: “Hey, man, you’re on IMDB.” I mean, how cool is that?
