Check Out The Teaser For My New Feature Film “Disappearing Boy” Shot With No Crew!

Today, I am thrilled to finally share the first teaser trailer for our new feature film Disappearing Boy.

This is the feature I’ve been writing about for the past year – shot on almost no budget and with no crew at all.

It began as a total creative experiment, with a simple thesis that scaling things down to the bare essentials would yield the most innovative creative process and best final product.

While I could have gone bigger with this film, raised money through investors, and taken a more traditional path, I did the opposite. I shot the movie with no crew, on gear I already owned, and with actors I already knew or had worked with.

Producing the film in this way allowed us to shoot it in a very unconventional way, spreading the schedule over the course of a year. We shot for a few days at a time and then would take weeks or months off to edit and re-write.

This allowed the story and characters evolve beyond what’s normally possible on a feature, and created a depth and texture to the finished film that couldn’t be accomplished any other way.

Disappearing Boy quickly became my favorite project to date, both in terms of the finished film and the process we developed along the way.

As I gear up for my next feature (which was recently financed via a distributor and will be shot this summer), I will definitely be carrying a lot of lessons forward from this experience.

And I’ll be sure to share more about the process on both features soon.

But for now… Watch the first official teaser for Disappearing Boy below!

It just launched so it would be super helpful if you could like it and leave a comment on the YouTube link above.

Thanks for checking it out, and hope this film can continue to serve as a case study for what’s possible when you embrace limitations.
