NoBudge.com is releasing Woodhead Entertainment‘s dark mockumentary, ‘THIS IS JAY CALVIN‘, on May 29, 2014.
The film is the latest release from Director Tony Yacenda, it was created over three years with Jim Cummings playing the doc’s subject. Jim was listed with Ornana as one of the 25 New Faces of Independent Film by Filmmaker Magazine.
‘THIS IS JAY CALVIN’ follows the rise and fall of a delusional filmmaker as he creates a terrible film called “Park Bench.” Apart from Jim, the 27 minute faux-documentary was shot with unsuspecting non-actors who believed they were making a real film. The Eastern Oregon Film Festival calls ‘THIS IS JAY CALVIN‘, “Heart-breaking, cringe-inducing, and hilarious…”
It closed the LA Comedy Shorts Film Festival, where Tony won the award for best director in 2013 for the short “Shadoweyes.”
The film’s unconventional approach creates an honest tone of documentary realism that makes Jay’s rise and fall uniquely bittersweet and culturally significant to all modern filmmakers.
