Lost and Found
Press Release: Toronto, Ontario – macIDeas in association with Seventh Stage Productions and Magnetic Film & Digital have pulled together an incredible creative and technical team to shoot the Bravo!FACT funded short Lost & Found on the infamous ‘Red Camera’ – the world’s latest and most exciting development in film technology.
When an engagement ring is lost and subsequently found, three lives are connected: Andy, an emotionally raw young man; Beth, the girl who broke his heart; and Lise, a cynic who doubts that she will ever find love. Deeply affected after she witnesses the accidental reunion of Andy and Beth, Lise considers the idea of fate for the first time. Pete, the wacky Lost & Found manager, throws some humour and wisdom into the mix.
Marcello Cabezas, Producer and brain-child behind the project, has been gathering this troupe for over a year. “The process began with an idea I’d had about the stories behind the items of a Lost & Found. I was in LA at the time and presented the idea to writer Alex McNally (Disney and Warner Bros Writer’s Workshops), and she brought the spark to life amazingly. From there I began pulling the team together.”
Director is multi-Gemini nominated Michael Kennedy. Starring is Gemini nominated Ellen Dubin (series regular Leo award-winning The Collector, cult Sundance hit Napoleon Dynamite, Blood Ties, Dead Zone and a recurring role on LEXX), Marcello Cabezas (Leo and Choke award-winning Bravo!FACT’s and This Is Our Youth directed by Woody Harrelson), Philip Williams (Welcome to Mooseport) and Melissa-Jane Shaw (feature Triumph of Dingus McGraw, Bravo!FACT Grocery Mishap, and Canadian Premiere of Anthony Minghella’a play Whale Music).
