Logline:  Parody meets mockumentary when a short film production takes itself way too seriously.


Synopsis:  “Kidnapping" is a comedy about a short film and its quirky crew’s experiences with the production. It’s part mockumentary and part parody, and includes behind-the-scenes interviews in the style of “The Office”.

Director's Bio:  Jay has been directing for ten years, and has experience as a writer, producer and editor. While mostly a self-taught filmmaker, he has also received training in Los Angeles and the Maine Media Workshops, with a focus on narrative storytelling.
