Frequently Asked Questions
1. Is this really inspired by true events?
2. Why is is set in L.A.?
Los Angeles needs stories about the people who live here, who are not a part of the film business, and there are too many stories about out of work actors trying to make it here. There are other people who live here that have nothing to do with the film business. Real people who are not in the 'industry'.
3. How did you cast these amazing and funny actors?
We found Angela (Amy Paffrath) in a class that one of the producers was in. We knew she was Angela immediately. When we did a table read, she brought along her husband, Drew Seeley and he was willling to read for Sean. He was Sean! Then through a network of friends and contacts we rounded out the cast. Then we did another read through at the Roosevelt Hotel (a legendary hotel in Hollywood with incredible history to infuse some amazing energy into the project) we added a few more roles. The actors came beacause who wouldnt want to read a script at the Roosevelt Hotel?
4. Is this an independent film?
Absolutely, yes! This project was conceived, written and produced completely outside of the studio system. It was independently financed and produced.
5. Is distribution in place?
No. There are distributors looking at it, now, but there was no distribution in place. Being a different kind of 'hybrid' film, that uses situations and storytelling techniques from sitcom TV, and yet making the film more like a modern indie, and with distribution changing, we knew we had an opportunity to do something differnet here, but were unsure of what distribution would like when we finished the film months after starting. We wanted to keep our options open.
6. Did anyone involved do a 'Do Over'?
We cannot answer that question.
7. Would anyone on the film do a 'Do Over'?
Considering some of the things that can happen (see the film!) we don't think we would. But, since the outcome of a 'Do Over' can be a good thing (sometimes), we might consider it.
8. Would you recommend a 'Do Over' to anyone?
Absolutely! It could be the dating (or re-dating) 'app' for this generation! And just think of the possibilities for the next generation!
9. It is such a new idea. How did this come about?
We couldn't find a fun, sexy comedy for people in this age group that were not raunchy or low brow. We saw way too many coming of age comedies for a younger audience or nostalgiac audience, but nothing that was spoeaking to a generation who were 'coming of age' later in life. This speaks to them and for them.
10. What's next?
Do Over Redux! Do Over Over!
