Love is a little spookier this time of year. In a new horror short film created for YouTube's #Halloweek, Jake (Wilson Cleveland) must take care of his boyfriend Brian (Hartley Sawyer), who is becoming dangerously unhinged.
Interesting pilot episode for what I presume will become a pretty fun show. Wilson Cleveland's built an interesting first episode that's got me eager to see what's next for this bizarre group of individuals.
Tribeca Film Festival is zeroing in on digital creative talent and studios with the launch next month of the inaugural Tribeca Digital Creators Market. New York festival also adds special screenings of projects from YouTube Red, Fullscreen, StyleHaul, Disney's Maker Studios
Anyone who knows me knows that there’s nothing I love more than a witty turn of phrase. The repartee between the two characters is both adversarial and familiar. It’s Sorkin-esque in the best sense of the word.
Cleveland and Sawyer have become frequent collaborators, and SPiN represents the latest chapter in their “bromance.” During the filming of SPiN, I joined the film’s two stars on set to talk about their past, present, and future work.
This is no average romance, but an homage to other genres, horror chief among them. The 9-minute short cleverly ratchets up the tension between the two men as Brian becomes unhinged. As the climax approaches, you’ll probably realize a twist is coming...but you won’t guess it.
You may remember Hartley Sawyer from Glory Daze, The Young & The Restless, or his stint on the late, lamented GCB. Now he’s starring in the creepy short film Kept Man with Wilson Cleveland (who is also the writer/producer).
Cleveland, perhaps best known as the creator of Leap Year, sees his self-financed short as creative reinvention. It was a chance to “tell a story I wanted to tell in my own words and on my own dime.” With “Kept Man” in the past, he’s now planning a lighter turn. “
Before Chipotle’s “Farmed and Dangerous” and IKEA’s “Easy To Assemble,” there was “The Temp Life,” the web’s first-ever branded series, which was launched in 2006 by professional actor and producer Wilson Cleveland.
