100% OFF – A Recession-Era Romance Kickstarter
Local filmmakers Andrew Schwartz and Shaun Scott (Seat of Empire, Waste of Time) are teaming up on a modernity-infused romantic-comedy that sets its characters into a time and economic situation not so different from our own. The film 100% OFF: A Recession-Era Romance follows the passion and the pitfalls of two mirrored relationships in the age of the Great Recession. On the film’s Kickstarter page producer Schwartz notes, “The film is intended to portray a generation of young people, in love and inspired, at a time of diminished expectations – a generation that started high school with the destruction of the Twin Towers, enrolled into college during two unpopular wars, and entered young adulthood confined to the pernicious parameters of a collapsed global economy.” This is Schwartz’s first feature-length film and the story is saturated with personal poignancy from the recent graduate’s frustration with the current job market.
