Making your way in Hollywood requires an ongoing effort to create projects that keep you in the flow of the industry. A great example of this is Kenyon Glover and his persistent motivation to reach his dream. He is not afraid to take whatever comes and see its value.
Just announced is a new film project entitled: It’s a Rough Life, written and starring Quinton Barr, and Kenyon Glover. The goal is to raise funds through crowdfunding, and ultimately film the production in Vancouver BC, Canada.
Kenyon says, “The film is a multi-level crime drama that mixes violence, grit, and dark humor. It's Batman without the money or morals.”
It’s a Rough Life is the first screenplay written by actor, Quinton Barr (Go fish and Betrayed - the gold Remy award winning film). The story depicts the life of Evan, a young man who grew up on the street. After witnessing the murder of his parents by Andre, the crime lord who controls his city with terror and violence, Evan vows revenge. Together with his mentor, Chris, he spends his life tearing apart Andre’s criminal empire. But, when Andre finds a way to increase his power Evan must step up and finally kill the nightmare from his past.
The script appeals to any audience who has lost family, or faced the hardships of life in the city. Although the film deals with dark content, it also has realistic action and unexpected comedy -- making it a blend of grit and entertainment accessible to an audience who loves hard-hitting movies with strong characters.
Hoping to raise the start-up development funds through crowdfunding, the duo will then be able to pitch for full funding and shoot the feature film in Vancouver to remind the world why it’s called North Hollywood.
