I don’t know much about gambling, or numbers, but I like to think that submitting our Independent Film Week online application at precisely 7:11 is somehow fortuitous; these two seem pretty good together.
In addition to two DVD screeners, and a $60 entree fee, the application called for a 25 word logline, 60 word synopsis, 500 word summary, and 500 word artistic statement. Here’s what I came up with.
LOGLINE: American’s Favorite Neighbor, PBS icon, Fred Rogers, sends a young MTV producer on a quest for depth and simplicity amidst a shallow and complex world.
SYNOPSIS: An MTV producer’s life is transformed when he meets the recently retired host of “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood,” Fred Rogers. Friendship with the PBS icon sets the young producer on a hero’s quest to find depth and simplicity amidst a shallow and complex world through conversations with Susan Stamberg (NPR), Tim Russert (“Meet The Press”), Marc Brown (“Arthur”) and more.
