Update on Filmmaker Alex Ferrari


Hello guys,


It's Alex Ferrari [ Director of B R O K E N - http://www.whatisbroken.com/ ] and I have a new "twisted" short film that I want to share with you called "Cyn." I think you will get a big kick out of it. Cyn was made on a 6 day schedule [ from script to final output ] for under $1000 and boosts one of the craziest end title sequences ever created for a 5 min short film. Think of throwing an atom bomb on a roach, completely over the top ; )


What the press is saying:


"Cyn is what GRINDHOUSE should've been!!!"
- Entertainment Insiders

"Visually, Cyn is utterly dazzling...I was in awe by the sheer visual luster of the film."
- Cinema Crazed


"Cyn," above all else, is ultra-hip, sexy & dangerous!"
- Guerilladephia Entertainment News


Here is a link to the teaser trailer: http://www.alittlecyn.com/trailer.html

Web Docs: http://www.alittlecyn.com/webdocs.html

A quick synopsis: "Cyn is a twisted tale by writer/director Alex Ferrari about Cynthia, a young woman who is taken away by two psychopaths (Mr. Sugar and Otto) in the middle of the night to an old abandoned kindergarden. Cyn quickly turns the tables on them and soon the night becomes a cat and mouse mind game. While this drama is unfolding a lone figure watches from a close circuit monitor. Who is Cynthia and what the hell is going on in this twisted tale?"

Thanks again for you time.
Best,
Alex Ferrari
