Eulogilia is a dark comedy whose unique storyline, vibrant characters, and poignant dialogue will not only make you laugh but will ultimately change the lens through which you appreciate life and death. By supporting, you’ll be a part of something fantastically different. Let’s break the mold!
About The Project
Eulogilia tells the story of Vivian, a troubled young woman, who is sent to group therapy after her bizarre addiction to eulogize is discovered. In therapy, she meets a cast of kooky characters who ultimately help her realize that perhaps she’s not that crazy after all.
The idea of this short originated as a desire to write a comedy that could be universally appreciated and yet entirely different from anything I had ever read before. I decided the best way to do that was to focus on something that most people don’t find that funny: Death.
Ugh Death, Yuck! It’s something we all have experienced or inevitably will experience multiple times throughout our lives. This past year, I personally lost two of my grandparents. Going through the mourning process, I was overwhelmed by all the memories that came flooding back to me: Grandma’s Halloween cookies, Grandpa’s dramatized book readings, hours spent playing card games, talking showbiz, and the list goes on. I realized that the hardest part, for me, of saying goodbye wasn’t so much accepting that they were gone but rather the lingering fear that, when they passed, perhaps they didn’t know how much they influenced me, how often I thought about them, or just simply how much I really loved them. It was disconcerting to me to accept that, in a way, it took their passing in order for me to fully identify and quantify my feelings for them, as if some kind of blockade had been lifted.
It was this disturbingly enlightening moment, in addition to my previous confusing experiences with death, that really inspired me to complete this story. Eulogilia isn’t a story about me, but rather a story fueled and inspired by my personal journey trying to understand life and death: a complicated task that I’ve injected with comedy for everyone’s enjoyment!
This project is incredibly close to my heart. We will be making a killer movie (not “killer” as in OJ, “killer” as in unbelievable), with an outstanding cast and crew. Once completed, we plan on submitting and participating in the full film festival circuit and, from there, the sky is the limit!
Thank you so incredibly much for your support, whatever form it comes in!
