Move over, “The Swimmer.” Step aside, “Stepford Wives.”
“An Inconsistent Story in Stealing” is coming to town.
No, it’s not a big-budget, full-length feature film. But the movie being shot in Westport later this summer has something those 2 projects — and nearly every other film made here — did not:
Connor and Carson Einarsen.
The talented Staples alums — Connor graduated last year from Carleton College, with a degree in cinema and media studies; Carson followed this year from Savannah College of Art and Design, majoring in film and TV — are preparing their 2nd shoot.
Two years ago, the brothers made “Ryan Hood,” a 60-minute film for just $40. (They rented jackets for police officers).
This one — “An Inconsistent Story in Stealing” — is more ambitious. Written by Carson, the neo-noir movie is about a former thief who is sucked back into the town she despises, to hunt down something she stole long ago.
There are 17 speaking parts, and 40 locations. One-third of the film will be shot at night, something most directors shy away from.
Pre-production takes place in June and July. Shooting is set for the 1st 3 weeks of August. In October “An Inconsistent Story” will be screened for the town. Then it’s off to film festivals around the world.
The Westport Library is helping, with a little bit of capital and a lot of resources. It’s one more way for the MakerSpace to expand its creative mission, Connor says.
In return, he and Carson will lead library classes for aspiring young filmmakers, and offer a film appreciation course.
The brothers are looking for actors and production assistants. If you’re interested, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
