Welcome to the World of Mr. Vingar
(or Mr. Vin-EH-gar as he prefers to be called)
The above sequence is from another short film but it gives you a pretty good idea of who Mr. Vingar is - an inept bumbler who, thinking he is better than he is, inevitably brings the world crashing down on his own head.
This new short,
Mr. Vingar and The Ants will be entered into film festivals and will
also be part of a package that will be used to raise money for the
feature. As a member of both The Second City and The Committee
Improvisational Groups, I'm fortunate in that I know many wonderful comic
actors who will be in the film.
DYING IS EASY, COMEDY IS HARD
penny will go towards the making of the film: location, camera, lighting,
sound, storyboards, props, editing, post production, etc., etc., as well as
paying the crew. Dagmar Weaver Madsen cinematographer, Nelson
Oliveros sound, Steve Werblun storyboards, Chris Blakely editor, all
seasoned professionals, will be behind the camera
Hurrying to work at Maps and Globes Inc., - the last such remaining company in existence, Mr. Vingar bumps into a young lady who bumps him back sending him sprawling into a plot of grass. Furious, Mr. Vingar gets up and discovers that hes covered with ants. He frantically brushes them off and snarling at the lady, hurries on his way. At work, he discovers that his boss is holding a staff meeting to announce layoffs. Mr. Vingar is confident that his services are indispensable. However, he quickly discovers that he didnt get rid of all the ants and they are now crawling around inside his clothing! At first, Mr. Vingar tries to ignore them but that soon becomes impossible...from there things quickly escalate... from bad to worse...and beyond.
The cast is made up of actors with credits ranging from popular TV shows to films and Broadway. Being a generous and kind-hearted lot, the actors are all working for nothing.
Whatever you can give will be greatly appreciated. We have all the talent all we need is the money!
Having a Vingar
Moment such as putting your coffee on the roof of your car and then
driving off while it's still there or hiding your valuables in such a secret
place that you have to tear your home apart to find them is common to all of
uswell, certainly to Mr. Vingar.
I envision a day when the phrase having a Vingar moment becomes part of the language. In fact, if you've had one, please share it with me in the comments section. The best one may end up as a movie itself with you in it.
We intend to make Mr. Vingar and The Ants a terrific little film and with your help it well be.
Thanks for your support!
