CinemaViva has just wrapped up their new short film “We All Need Someone.” It’s a dark, yet romantic comedy that explores why we stay in toxic relationships. The film also focuses on how each person in a relationship can have conflicting perceptions of reality as well as differing perspectives about love and life.
Logline: Pedro and Lacey love each other, but he has been acting strangely. His new imaginary friend isn’t helping their relationship either. After Lacey breaks up with him, Pedro is determined to get her back. How far will he go for love?
We All Need Someone Trailer
An all local cast and crew was used to shoot the film in the San Diego neighborhoods of Talmadge, Banker’s Hill and Balboa Park. The film was blessed with excellent performances from the whole cast. Veteran actor Joe Paulson was the perfect choice for the part of “Larry” while Rhianna Basore gave a spirited performance as “Lacey.” Actress and filmmaker Marci Krown did a superb job as “Sheila,” Lacey’s nosey co-worker. The film is rounded out with an original score by Elias Symons.
Currently, Executive Producer and lead actor, Horacio Jones is in the process of submitting the film to festivals. He also wrote the film which is based on a true story in San Diego. You can hear Horacio discuss his inspiration for the film by watching his interview on Confessions of Impact Entrepreneurs by Molly Lavik at 12 minutes and 30 seconds into the show.
