Filming for Duel Romance has begun

Now that I'm back from , I'm happy to announce that I have started with the production and even have some of the first shots done. I have yet to shoot any of the scenes with any of the princible actors, but I believe that should be just a few days away.

I want to thank people in advance for their help

Happy to announce the role of Emily has been cast

There is a saying "Write what you know," as a student film maker I also have found the wisdom in writing a script that my parents can afford to fund. Sure blowing up a Bugatti as the climax of a chase scene through the streets of Paris might be exciting, but not financially possible. As a result the film will be shot in various locations around Chicago.
Those spot include locations Lincoln Park, Old Town, and Grant Park. There will be a mix of both interior and exterior sites.
Alexis Grossman has agreed to play the part of Emily
 I have been able to cast most parts for the film. To date the cast includes:

Samatha (Sam) Perry        Loyola Academy
Jack Marrinson                Walter Payton
Lane J. Lubell                   Latin School
Alexis Grossman.             Glenbrook North
James Garlin                    In from LA
Dante Lavia                      Francis Parker
Joe Guinan                       Fenwick High
Marla Garlin                     In From LA

Judy & Jerry Lubell          Grand Parents (Type Cast)

Curb Your Enthusiasm / Season 8

I have been spending the past days in New York at Passport NYC Film camp.
They arrainged for tickets to see the cast of HBO’s, Curb Your Enthusiasm here at 92Y. 
We got to see the first episode of the upcoming new season (that airs this Sunday, July 10th)

The show was great. The season premiere was flawless!
The panel however, was hosted by the surprisingly comical Brian Williams of the Nightly News on NBC. Jeff, Susie, Cheryl, & of course, Larry himself were all present. It was a great night. And when Larry said his 2 biggest idols were Woody Allen & Mel Brooks, I lit up like a lightbulb.

Thanks Jeff Garlin for getting it set up so we could attend and have our picture taken with the cast.

"Duel Romance" News: Sam Perry to Executive Produce and Take Supporting Role

Sam Perry - a dear friend of mine and Loyola Academy student - has signed on to EP (Executive Producer)  our new film under the working-title of "Duel Romance." She has also agreed to play the supporting role of Leighton, the regular actress of my films who was denied the lead role in the new film (in the new film). Her character will also be seen in Lane J. Lubell's character's previous films, both of which opposite Tom.

I - Lane J. Lubell - will write & direct. Other actors of the film include Lubell (me) in the lead role as Will Simmers. As well as I am currently in negotiations with James Garlin (son of Jeff Garlin (Daddy Day Care, Curb Your Enthusiasm)) for the integral role of Tom - my acting regular who becomes in tangled in a complicated web of love. I am currently scouting/casting the role of Emily, the female lead. 

Behind Closed Doors Up-Date

All principle filming has concluded. I have taken a small break to wind up school projects as well as study for finals.

I will finish with a few critical "Voice Overs" and continue editing. The plan is to have the film ready to submit to the Chicago Horror Film Festival.

Due to the longer length of this film, I'm not sure if I will be able to post it to YouTube. If not I will have to find other options.

Chicago High School Film Fest

OK, granted it's a far cry from Cannes Film Festival.
No Bob and Harvey Weinstein are not going to be in the audience looking
for the next film for Miramax to distribute. But that does not stop me from being a proud father and being happy to see that Lane's newest film made the finals.

Is the actual name for the larger film that is still in production.
He still has additional footage to be shot, followed by a long process of voice overs, color correction, Sound editing, cutting and even CG effects.

What he submitted was in truth a segment of his larger work. The complete film would greatly exceed the 10 Minute time limit, and there is some language and subject matter that would not "Clear the censors" at an event for Chicagoland High Schools. 

The Chicagoland High School Film Festival.

Friday from 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm at Latin School auditorium
