“Find a penny, pick it up. All day long… you’ll have good luck?”
FIND A PENNY is a short comedic commentary on the “reward” or “good fortunes” we come to expect in life and the harsh realities we, often times, don’t.
It’s also just really nice to laugh. Especially with the current state of the world.
FIND A PENNY was filmed adhering to all COVID regulations.
- We were a crew of 2 (director and DP) who wore PPE and had hand sanitizer on us at all times to distribute.
- Our actors (and ourselves) are couples/roommates who all reside in the same unit/building.
- There was zero contact between our actors on camera and we maintained social distance while filming.
- We filmed in areas not heavily populated during hours where there was no one else around.
