A short film coming soon produced, written, and directed by Eric Whitten who I had the pleasure of working with on a short film several years ago. I knew him then as a talented actor, but now he’s a one man band, writing and producing his own projects. This will be his second directorial project. CHALK is an allegory for gentrification with Chalk City being taken over by an influx of dry-erase boards. Chalk City will be brought to life by having the actors interact with illustrated sets that have been vectorized. I very much admire Eric’s ambition as a filmmaker and also his determination to produce something unique that his cast and crew can be proud to be a part of. Above is the link to the film’s official website. I highly recommended that you subscribe for updates and there you can find links to the film’s social media pages.
