Synopsis:

Hi! Thanks for your interest in my dream, indie film project. 90% improvised.

100% lying while telling the truth.

‘Worst Day Ever’ is an exploration of the workplace, tragi-comedy. ‘Adventureland’ meets ‘Parks and Recreation’ meets ‘Clerks’. When you create something, shit always hits the fan. I say this a lot…I’m amazed anything ever gets done.

The film will chronicle the break up of a band, the dissolution of a marriage, & creation of art steeping in the astounding absurdity of existence.

Thanks for your consideration.

peace and love,

Scott
