BOY MEETS BOY
"The pursuit of perfection and the hunt for love takes us on a thrilling and mysterious ride."

Synopsis

Honest, true and raw. Vincent is searching for love in his isolated perfect life. He turns to online dating sites to meet the One! Steven catches his attention. Mystery and anxiousness builds a mood of desperation that transforms to chaos, curiosity and anticipation. A battle between perfection and passion; nervous romance leads to passion triumphing... or does it? Suspense builds as the battle takes place. Victory is in your perception.

Director's Statement

Directing "boy meets boy" was a unique experience for me. Not only did I get to work with a group of very talented actors, producers and film-makers, but I also had the exciting opportunity to work with an excellent little script, written by Simona Atias. And hopefully we've done the script justice.

The theme of "boy meets boy" drew me into the project instantly, because in it I saw a tragedy that I see often unfolding in the world around us today. This is the search for perfection; this idea that we must transform and change ourselves in order to be happy is pervasive in our society today. And I liked that the script explored the ramifications of this obsession in such a careful, elegant way.

Now, obviously, as film-makers, we wanted to push this theme a little bit. And this is where the super-natural element of our story comes into play. We wanted to play with the reality and un-reality of our story. But the story and theme could almost work without this element, to similar conclusion.

What I enjoyed the most on this project was our un-inhibited creative process. We had no blue print going into this. We let the material lead us. We opened up the entire process to see where it would take us. As a group, Production Designer Moe Curtain, DOP Rob Crone, Writer/Producer Simona Atias, and Actor Charles Zuckermann were all incredibly generous and open to any and all ideas. They are among some of the kindest artists I have ever worked with.

But the real hero of "boy meets boy", the man who oversaw this gutsy, daring project is Producer and Actor Mike Azevedo. Without his passion, his bold commitment, none of this would have happened. He welcomed us onto his project and into his home, and then selflessly stood back and allowed us to, together, as a group, create "Boy Meets Boy". We are all grateful and inspired by him."
