James Franco has come on board to direct and produce William Gay’s “The Long Home,” a coming-of-age story set in rural Tennessee in the 1940s. The book was adapted by Woolf + Lapin writer Steve Janas and Rabbit Bandini producer Vince Jolivette.

Franco and Jolivette will produce through their Rabbit Bandini Productions.

“The story centers on a young and headstrong Tennessee carpenter who lost his father years before to a human evil and is forced to make difficult moral choices to face up to that evil. “The Long Home” was Gay’s debut novel and won the 1999 James A. Michener Memorial Prize.”

Cameras start rolling early May.

Congratulations to Steve Janas!

Montreal Team Behind the Amazing “Le Gouffre”

Le Gouffre is the first animated short film produced and directed by Lightning Boy Studio, a young creative team based in Montreal.

“The film tells the story of two spirited travelers who come across an incredibly wide chasm on their journey and decide to build a bridge to cross it.”

With some help from Kickstarter, the film was mostly self-financed over two years by the young guys behind Lightning Boy Studio, David Forest, Thomas Chrétien and Carl Beauchemin.

Woolf + Lapin was at the opening of the new Sanchez Brothers exhibition at Parisian Laundry. “In the main gallery, seven large-scale photographs capture arresting scenes of narrative and psychological intensity. These new images reference the spectacular visual languages of film and photojournalism while exploring themes such as youth, sensuality, creativity and fear.”

Their singular work is steeped in film language. It underscores a strong sense of mise-en-scène and foreboding drama.

The Sanchez Brothers are no strangers to drama. They have a film in the works called A Worthy Companion. Production is slated for June 2015 with micro_scope.

Woolf + Lapin congratulates both Carlos and Jason for their spectacular work!
