COOL FOR FIVE SECONDS

Written by Calamity West
Directed by Dani Wieder 
Starring Katherine Bourne Taylor and Mary Tilden

SYNOPSIS 

When Colleen reunites with her estranged sister, things don’t go exactly as she planned. 

PROJECT HISTORY 

In 2017, Dani directed Katherine and Mary in Cool for Five Seconds by Calamity West for a theater festival in Chicago, the Women’s Theatre Alliance Actor Showcase. They fell in love with the script and its story, and decided to keep working on the project by turning it into a short film. Mary and Katherine became the producers of the project, and the filmmaking process began. Together, Dani and screenwriter Calamity West adapted the play script for the screen. With our Director of Photography, Jason Chiu, we shot a proof of concept trailer to test out our ideas and filmmaking chops. After the trailer was finished, we added Dana Macel (production designer), Gabby Henderson (Production Sound Mixer), Reba Wilson (1st AC), Cole Moore (Gaffer), and Travis Delgado (AD) to the team.
