“The Man in the Hat”
Two unlikely friends work together to uncover the truth, and fiction, behind their psychotic hallucinations.
This film started as a four page short story written in December of 2022. After sitting on the story for a few months, I decided that it wouldn't be too hard to translate it into a screenplay. After doing so and getting some constructive ideas from filmmaker friends, we went into pre-production, which lasted 4 months, and then production, which lasted 4 days. We managed to milk our $2,500 budget down to the last penny.
