New Hampshire-filmed short "Wired" premieres at Action on Film Int'l Film Festival

[Congrats on the premiere--we're looking forward to hearing more news soon! From the filmmakers:]
Local first-time filmmaker Jordan Mitchell-Love's short film "Wired" had its world premiere at the Action on Film International Film Festival In Monrovia, California this past August.  The film was shown alongside many other well-established filmmakers and actors, including one starring the children of the late David Carradine.

"Wired" is an action short and tells the story of a former secret agent named Ryan Miller, who is living in hiding and is presented to the audience tied to a chair, beaten, and given a choice, one that will decide whether he lives or dies.

Praise was overall positive, with particular emphasis on the film locations, the acting, as well as the cinematography.  "Wired" was a proof of concept film, demonstrating that action movies can have a fleshed out plot and well developed characters.

Mitchell-Love came up with the idea and story due to a desire to showcase his stunt and martial arts prowess.  Mitchell-Love was lead actor, co-writer, producer, and stunt coordinator.  He approached Paul Anthony Rogers of Lynnfield, MA, a long time collaborator, about the project, and the two worked together to write a script.  Rogers was also the director of the film.

Mitchell-Love, an alum of Keene State College in Keene, NH, also asked several of his former classmates to assist in the project, including cinematographer Bryant Naro and Emmy-nominated sound editor Meagan Frappiea of Keene; Samuel Lusted of Manchester as assistant camera; and Dustin Howard of Keene as Key Grip and actor.  Other cast and crew include Andy To (Bethlehem, PA) as stunt choreographer and actor; Julie LeShane (Waltham, MA) for makeup; and Ben Bornstein (New York, NY) as the specialty prop designer.

The goal of "Wired" is to use the film as a proof of concept to gain funding for a television pilot, which Mitchell-Love hopes to film in Northern New England.

"Wired" was filmed during Labor Day weekend of 2013 in and around Bellows Falls, VT and Keene, NH.
