Wayside Wonder Dayswas penned by film maker John David Hartfield. It is the actor/director's follow-up to "Homecoming," which has won critical acclaim as it currently makes the rounds on the festival circuit. The story follows Zack, a former
boy band member and 80's high score gamer, who desperately tries to
recapture his former fame. At 42, and hosting Karaoke in Los Angeles
in exchange for rent, Zack's life isn't what he imagined it would be.
When things finally reach the tipping point, Zack is forced to move back
to Newark, Ohio, to live with his parents. There, he must face his
lost dreams - and his old job - all the while being reminded of his
In very funny yet poignant moments, Zack is forced to grow up and take
responsibility for himself. Ultimately, he discovers what life has been
offering all along the way.
A former LAPD detective goes 'rogue' to find his fiancee's killer while navigating his conscience and old loyalties.
Challenge of the Super Friends
The film explores the wonder and pain of childhood in a small town in the 1970's.
The Member and Me The Member and Me'
is a satirical comedy about Joan and David: husband and wife, spiritual
gurus, best selling authors of "The Member and Me: The Seven
Requirements for a Journey like no other" and extremely flawed human
beings. On the biggest day of their career - the day their latest
seminar is going to be broadcast live to over 80 countries - they set
out on a road trip from Beverly Hills to Monterey to become one with
nature and prepare for the event. The same day, the number one news
program in America, "In The Spotlight", hosted by Barbara Sawyer, is
also showing an all day special on the authors and their lives leading
up to the much-anticipated seminar. As the world sees where Joan and
David came from and the checkered past that lead them to super spiritual
guru stardom, their literal journey up the Pacific Coast Highway takes
an unexpected turn. They not only have to fight for their lives but
they have to put their own book's principles to the test as they fly off
the path to enlightenment and attempt to claw their way back on - even
if they have to kill someone to do it.
The Member and Me mixes fictional characters and situations with real
people and reality elements in the exact opposite way that the recent
box office smash "Borat:
Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of
Kazakhstan" did. Joan and David are the real life people and
screenwriters of The Member and Me: Kelli Joan Bennett and John David Hartfield.
They have actually written the satirical self help book "The Member and
Me, the Seven Requirements for a Journey like no other" and it is
currently being published. They are playing themselves in the movie and
the movie is loosely based on their lives. Although the scenes with
Joan and David's family, friends and celebrity acquaintances are
scripted in the The Member and Me screenplay, those scenes will be shot
reality TV style with their real families, friends and celebrity
By blurring the lines of reality, fiction, the mockumentary tone of Christopher Guest's
A Mighty Wind, Best in Show and Waiting for Guffman, and the narrative
edge of the road movie Harold and Kumar go to White Castle, The Member
and Me creates a unique cinematic hybrid in a commercially viable film.
