Joshua Sallach and James Kwan have been the driving and creative force behind 3 recent Albuquerque films: "The Journal of Mr.Willaby" (2009), "Pascal's Bullet" (2010), and "Never Land" (2010). The pair's first loves are directing and cinematography, respectively, but in true indie spirit they have been known to write, produce and edit as well. The two feel strongly that the strength of their filmmaking is due to the production team and crew they've been able to bring together for each project. The collaborative nature of their projects enables them to learn from and grow with other talented filmmakers in the community.
Joshua and James hope to continue strengthening their filmmaking chops with their latest endeavor, "Under The Stairs", by drawing from the growing pool of talented filmmakers and artists they have had the privilege of working with on previous projects. More information about "Under the Stairs" can be found at "http://www.indiegogo.com/Under-the-Stairs".
Aimee Dent has had to grow up fast. She is raising her little brother on her own Just when she is feeling overwhelmed by the responsibility, her life is changed forever when she meets Peter, an adolescent boy who reminds her what it's like to be a kid again. However, after seeing Peter and the group of vagabond orphans he cares for, she learns Peter's secret: he can never grow up...
'Never Land' is a modern retelling of J.M. Barrie's classic story, Peter Pan, showing the struggles that come from growing up way too fast . . . or not fast enough.
JOURNAL OF MR. WILLABY:
Aidan Wilcox, a willful pre-teen foster boy, is looking for a way to earn some extra cash during his spring break. Meeting Mr. Willaby, an African-American war hero, at first doesn't seem like it'll pay the big bucks, until he learns of Mr. Willaby's journal, a book that contains future events already documented. Aidan decides it might be worth stealing a peak - an act that could have dire consequences.
The Journal of Mr. Willaby is a dramatic short film, set in the present day. The story depicts the helter-skelter life in a New Mexico foster home and, through the relationship between a boy and a decorated veteran, the unexpected impact of knowing too much, or too little, about one's own future.
In the dry heat of the New Mexican desert, lawman Ethan Washburn tracks a killer to an abandoned Old Route 66 diner. There he discovers six bounty hunters shot dead and a fugitive named Asa, accompanied by an empty six-shooter and a bottle of bourbon, slowly bleeding to death in a booth. As years of pursuit now come to a close, Asa invites Ethan to join him to reminisce over one last drink, one last reckoning of his crimes, and one final showdown.
