Late Lunch is a comedy horror short film. It's about a husband who stumbles across the perfect punishment after his wife gives his most prized possession to charity in this dastardly fable where nobody leaves hungry.

Late Lunch started as a story I wrote for my dad, Charlie Sloin, to star. I figured a story about a guy that feeds his wife to the homeless was the perfect vehicle for this rubber-faced lunatic whose parents never let him pursue acting. At the same time, I another short I wrote, Smash the

Kitty, was showing up on the festival circuit. The comedy horror feature I wrote was being

optioned by a production company who was looking at a string of bad directors and reality stars for the project. Luckily, we were able to pull the script free> It was then my partner, Ben Padua, and I started Hedley Productions. Late Lunch is our first project with Hedley.

We shot Late Lunch on a shoestring budget, bolstered by a string of good luck and big favors. We had an amazingly creepy old house, a hilarious cast who knew how to play off each other, and a brilliant crew who worked for hours on end.

Now the film is finished shooting and in post-production, readying for the festival circuit so it

can get the attention we think it deserves and springboard our other projects—all waiting in the wings.

Our immediate goal? To raise capital to pay for Late Lunch post production, showings, and music rights.

Help us make it happen for Late Lunch. We need perk for your contribution.
