FUNNY OR DIE
CHECK OUT OUR NEWEST MICRO SHORT -THE WALKER
Dancing Silly Productions is an independent film production company based in Hollywood, CA. Originating Eight years ago by a husband and wife super duo, Rich & Lizz. With a passion and motivation for movie making. They cast and otherwise employ their closest friends, who also have the same sentiment and aspirations. Together they have created dozens of short films over the past several years, including No Sugar Rim, Bummed, That Girl,
and the most recent The Walker.
In 2008 Dancing Silly Productions teamed up with BPA Productions to write, direct and produce their first feature length film entitled Suicide is Easy.
Suicide is Easy is not a story about death; it's a story about life...Rich's life. A student filmmaker who decides to
make a documentary with help from his good friend and sound girl, Samantha. Their subject of choice: suicide.
An internet posting seeking people contemplating suicide draws in more than either of them expected.
Samantha is hesitant, but Rich dives right into the story and his film, with little concern for unfolding events
and their utmost ramifications. A little over their heads, they decide to continue with this forbidden, yet
intriguing topic. Their journey takes them from one maniacal scenario to the next, and with each victim, the
story is changed. Their friendship and their outlook on what it means to be alive becomes redefined as the
movie progresses. Sending you on an emotional roller coaster, and with a taboo subject Suicide is Easy is
guaranteed to make you think, entertain, and leave you craving more.
Suicide is Easy
Best Guerrilla Film at the Action on Film International Film Festival in 2009. Rachel Wagner who played the supporting role of Samantha, was also nominated for Best Actress at the festival. In December 2014 Suicide is Easy will premiere on KLCS Los Angeles, as part of the Festival Filmmakers Series. Go SIE!!!
In 2010 Dancing Silly Productions teamed up with David Alexander Willis to create their 2nd feature ENVISAGE
. Written and produced by all three, with Rich Directing, Lizz as one of the leads, and Willis as the cinematographer. Together they created something unique. Shot entirely in subjective camera and in the Los Angeles area, we now introduce, ENVISAGE
Follow a normal day in the life of three abnormal characters, to experience life as another person for a day.
Shot in entirely in subjective camera not only will you see what our characters see, you also hear their inner
thoughts. Meet Nelson, a middle-aged agoraphobic man who hasn’t left his apartment in 10 years. Sophie – a
fun loving 20 something, finds life hard juggling her hospital residency and her love life with her girlfriend.
Bryan, a lazy, late 20’s poster child for mediocrity, with no direction or drive, splits his time between his 2 jobs
of being a video store clerk and a drug dealer, which neither he excels at. With a twist in each story, we leave
the audience the chance to ENVISAGE what will happen to our 3 characters.
This past year Dancing Silly's newest baby has been in development; and now in the financing stage to make the Pilot. The Comedic sitcom called THE GREEN ROOM, was Created by Lizz, Rich and Zahida Kazar.
Patrick Jason moves to California to secure the Job of his
dreams - studying the biochemistry of plants. But when no reputable company is
willing to hire the inexperienced young twenty-two year old, he turns to the
only place that will allow him to work with plants. A medical marijuana
dispensary known as the Green Room. It’s a classic fish out of water tale as
the straight laced Patrick must work with the wacky Green Room employees like
Raffi, his chronically high boss, Charles a.k.a 9mm, the super scary security
guard, Maureen, a girl who values weed over people, Autumn, the spacey cashier/
activist who can’t remember what cause she is picketing for, and Brian, the
prankster extraordinaire. With the Green Room facing constant bankruptcy,
Patrick’s green thumb and sane perspective may be the Green Room’s last hope.
On Tuesday October 14th, 2014 at 7pm
Dancing Silly and everyone involved with The Green Room will be having a
Kickstarter Launch Party @ The Goethe Institut on Wilshire Blvd.
Performances by the cast, TGR Merch! and other fun surprises.
Come be a part of the experience and help make this dream of ours come true!
