So proud and excited to have launched our first film website for Mr. Roosevelt – a film written, directed and starring Noël Wells.
We were approached by the team to develop a promotional website very quickly to coincide for the premiere of the film. Noël and the team were truly incredible to work with and very involved in the creative process. Not only does Noël write, direct and star in the film, but she has illustration and graphic design skills to boot, providing all of the animated gifs and “scratch-style” graphics you will see on the site.
We hope you will support indie film and go see Mr. Roosevelt!
Here is a short synopsis of the film taken from Rotten Tomatoes:
In her feature directorial debut, Noël Wells portrays Emily, a talented but hard-to-classify comedic performer who left behind her home and boyfriend to pursue career opportunities in L.A. When a loved one falls ill, Emily rushes back to Austin where she’s forced to stay with her ex-boyfriend (Nick Thune) and his new-and-improved girlfriend (Britt Lower), a totally together woman with a five-year plan. Though Emily is the same, everything else is different: her house has been smartly redecorated, her rocker boyfriend is training to be a real estate agent, and her old haunts show serious signs of gentrification. Holed up in her own guest room, Emily–who has no idea what she’ll be doing five days from now, let alone five years– is forced to question everyone’s values: are they sell-outs or have they just figured out what makes them happy? And is she following her dreams or is she just a self-absorbed loser?
Go. See. It.
