The world around Donovan may be twisted, but he sees it quite differently. With the help of his unusual mother Splendora, Donovan lives his life inside the wondrous colorful world of his own imagination.

This pilot is being produced independently by a team of established local filmmakers, producers, and performers, who've invested the time and finances to create a project in which we can show off our best, most professional work.

The tone is fast, irreverent, a little campy, a little dark, and uniquely entertaining. The goal is to sell it to a network that needs cheap, clever, snappy content (Bravo, Logo, Comedy Central, etc). Exploring Find financial backing to produce a web series.)

seeking replacement actor- short notice

Hello everyone-

I'm directing "Sylvia" in Vancouver and the male lead dropped out. I'm looking for someone who can play 40-50 years old and that can learn lines quickly. Greg is a character in transition; in love with both his wife and his dog. Our performance dates:

August 5-6, 12-13, 19-20

Rehearsals are Mon-Th 7:00-10:00 with some weekends.

This is a non-equity gig. We're planning to give the cast a small amount for expenses once we've covered the cost of the production.

Reply to: Please contact me at or 971-563-3661 to schedule a time to read this weekend.
