Project Main Details

Simon Says Short Film 

"Simon Says" is the story of a man whose inner voice is his own worst enemy. It becomes ultimately about how a man begins to break free from these chains.

Simon has big ideas and even bigger dreams. The fact that he's trapped in a small life, working monotonous days in a dingy, confined "mom and pop" mailbox store makes him all the more frustrated - and all the more vulnerable to the negative thoughts that fill his head. Insecure and envious, he's grown accustomed to a life of isolation. But all that is about to change. Or so he desperately hopes.

Simon is determined to get out of his situation by coming up with new product ideas. In this scene he sits surrounded by boxes of product that never sold.

The VO from the MOTHER would be from a voice mail/answering machine recording she left for him. It could also be from a conversation they once had.

TONE: This is a drama. The tone of this film is that of complete authenticity. The intention of this part should be natural and real.

I will include a photo of Simon at the bottom of this post.


This film was funded through a 501c3 not for profit org. It is a passion project for me and our Simon Says team. We wanted to tell the story of this man and the inner "demons" that control so much of his life. The themes of isolation, negative thinking, a perceived lack of value, and the need of friendship all play into our story. Our goal is that people will begin to "think about what they think about." The tagline is the phrase, "Who do you think you are?"

The fee is quite low due to us not getting all of our post budget. We are just trying to get this finished.

We really think we have something special to share.
