Conceived in Sweden, Made in USA
Welcome to the world of "Happy Kids" a film in the making!
As with all creative projects, this film has a life of its own and I hope to track that little life here. I hope you'll join me for the upcoming months of making this little dream of mine happen.
Happy Kids is a film adaptation of a play I wrote called "Tickle Me, Red Monster", largely based on my own experience as a children's party performer in Los Angeles.
In the fall of 2013, I started to turn that script into another story. I thought it was going to be funny but it turned ot to be dreary - and so I gave it a happy title and decided to just keep digging. More dreariness. I realized I enjoyed exploring the absurd dreariness of this time in my life. Rather than wait for someone to be interested in this same stuff, I decided to produce this myself. I've never done this before so, bear with me, it's gonna get bumpy!
But it might also be thrilling and give us some things to laugh about later...hope so!
Here we go!
