RUNNING TIME 13:30
NOTE: I think life is about saying "yes". "Yes"
to your dreams. "Yes" to your own unique voice. "Yes"
to all the possibilities & challenges life presents. No matter how
daunting they may seem. "Yes" to your own unique voice. I
think every time you say "yes", it opens up a whole world
of potential. Of insight and experience. And it's a shame that we live
in a world that seems to instill a fear based point of view from which
many people live their lives. Always saying "no". And therefore
never really living life. Never really experiencing all that they're
meant to encounter and learn from.
Tracey marks his birthday by making a terrifying choice from which there's no turning back. And with Gabriel's guidance finally learns to say “yes” to himself, to life, and to love.
Written and directed by Gerald McCullouch (C.S.I.), shot on 35mm by Bobby Bukowski (Arlington Road), and edited by Peggy Davis (The Big Kahuna), The Moment After also stars International Latin Heartthrob Gabriel Romero, Leslie Easterbrook (Laverne & Shirley), and Lela Lee (creator of Angry Little Asian Girl).
The genesis of the project stemmed from Mr. McCullouchs 30th Birthday celebration. After spending 3 years creating a story to center around the event, it was developed as a digital film due to cost. However, with the guidance of Casey Suchan and Denis Hennelly of Open Road Films as well as Timothy Gruver of Wild Indians Entertainment Group, it was decided that filming on 35mm was monetarily feasible and essential to the story.
Galvanizing his years of experience as an actor (C.S.I, Melrose Place, Beverly Hills 90210), he was able to put together a first class production team including Bobby Bukowski (Arlington Road) as his Director of Photography, Peggy Davis (The Big Kahuna) as his editor, and Aaron Glascock (Insomnia) as the films Sound Designer. The film was shot during the first four days of November 2001 on locations in Malibu, Los Angeles, and Griffith Park.
