The story of a Golden Globe nominated actress who’s done much of it and advice to those who want to do it!


Hello everyone.   Here is the short film we made a couple of years ago, which has had a good reception at a few Festivals and on You Tube.   It’s now a favourite of mine and hope it will  be of yours!   A little cautionary tale for young men and older woman.

WATCH:

An older woman picks up young man, with interesting results.

Directors: Will Von Tagen and Lincoln Lewis

MAKING OF COUGAR

Will, Lincoln and Jane making “Cougar”

We made the film in the bar of Chandlers Restaurant in Boise, with the other interiors shot in Hotel 43.   The owners and staff couldn’t have been nicer or more helpful.  Though the cleaning team did throw away some balloons our Art Director Glida Bothwell had bought for the shoot, before we actually got to them.  Glida was very cross.    The film was directed by Will von Tagen and Lincoln Lewis, with Will also playing the Young Man and Lincoln was Director of Photography.   I think they did a great job…hope you do too.   Also on board as Producer was Mike Tetro, who just directed our latest short About Andy…     I met and worked with Will and Lincoln on Will’s film  Almosting It  playing opposite Lee Majors, with whom I had done a couple of Six Million Man episodes…it’s a small world!  Actually Lincoln had also photographed The Tell-Tale Heart for us a few years earlier, one of the New Chilling Tales films… Mark Davis, also from Almosting It was Camera Operator.

 

Lincoln Lewis and Mark Davis using their ingenuity with a baggage cart! They worked well together….always imaginative!!  They shot with the well loved Red Camera, being famous for first digital film making on major films, long ago on the movie of Miami Vice.

Steve Eaton, well known Musician and Composer, who also lives locally, did the music for us and we had some interesting people who agreed to be extras.   We shot the film in one day, with a very, very small budget and I think a good time was had by all!

Enjoy!!!
