John Cullen - Directorial debut

A Well-Lit Life Trailer from John Cullen on Vimeo.

I had the pleasure of having a beer with Toronto photographer, John Cullen, and local, Hamish Hamilton, a couple of nights ago.

A Well-Lit Life is John's first major foray into directing motion. I'm looking forward to seeing the full length version. He also co-produced the project.

Synopsis (from 'the make work project', created by co-producer/writer, Jon Wayne Brown):

Charles sees himself as an acting talent from a golden age, destined to follow in the footsteps of Bogart and Grant. Hollywood’s spotlight may not have noticed yet, but when it does, with the aid of makeup and flattering lighting, he will be ready. Charles’ boss, however, sees Charles as a forty-something Junior Sales Associate with special needs that can no longer be accommodated. A Well-Lit Life is the story of the day these two visions collide.
