Antonio had written a script about his girlfriend’s new iPhone. Mind you, this is when they first came out. People were losing it over this thing. The premise is the girl has a shit boyfriend, the iPhone starts sweet talking her and, well, they plot to kill him.
We’d knew Max since we cast him in another short that never went to production a year before. He was doing well in the theatre scene and seems poised for L.A. Molly on the other hand was a playwright and killer producer moonlighting as an actress. We loved her attitude from the start and put her in a few things.
Then there’s the original iPhone. Amazing there’s been 5 versions since. This thing was pretty cool. We changed my name in Cindy’s phone to “iPhone” and texted live as she acted.
The sounds was a master stroke from our Sound Designer, Gora Faal. Who I met shooting for Prestigious Models. He added custom sounds to simulate the iPhone’s talking voice. No one knew Suri would one day sound like Scarlet.
Google M ran in several festivals in NYC and placed 2nd at the Suck my Flick film festival in Portland.
