In my opinion Indie films are the heart of film-making. There is a common phrase among actors/actresses in Hollywood, “One for the studio, one for me”, meaning that a lot of times to do a film they want to do, they have to do a film for the studios to either pay the bills or redeem a favor. Indie films are an area where these artists tend to flock to in order to appease their need for creativity and to remember why they’re in the business. This trailer today caught my eye and I’m hoping I may get to see another side of Jenna Fischer‘s abilities as an actress. Take a look at the trailer for The Giant Mechanical Man below.
I know that it is just the trailer but I’m going to make a preemptive vote of confidence in this film. It has an established cast list and all are playing what seem to be very dynamic roles. A strong theme that I see with this film is individuality and I think a lot of people are going to be able to identify with that. Having Chris Messina representing individuality and Topher Grace representing a leader of conformity, I think the film has a chance to establish a very strong protagonist and antagonist. I’m going to keep an eye on this film, I already feel drawn to the characters.
