THE PLAN – Matthew Kalish

Written by Tony Northrup

This is a short film written and directed by Mathew Kalish. It is a black & white film (which I have always enjoyed, I feel B/W give films a whole new way of viewing it that color can’t capture) and the film stars Ryder Bach and Andrea M. Jensen.

The story begins with Bach playing a young man who is fed up with his life, girlfriend, and other things. He packs his bag full of clothes, cameras, and other personnal belongings and heads to Las Vegas thinking that this will make his life better by starting all over. Once he arrives, he looks for just the right Casino to try his hand at lady luck. He finds a young girl (Jensen) sitting, relaxing, & minding her own business on a bench near the billboard he’s looking at. He asks if she’s heard of a particular Casino he’s looking for, but she gives him a hard time. He decides to take her picture for his own self just because she’s pretty, but she apparently doesn’t care for this kind jesture and walks away very upset.

While the young man asks a truck driver about the Casino he’s looking for, the young girl snatch’s his camera and gives chase. It’s not until later that this particular girl gets him back for taking her picture, but she get’s him back in a good way and leaves the story open for a possible sequel. Does he find what he’s looking for in Vegas and what his old life lacked? A new life? A new love? Money?

THE PLAN was filmed well and I did like the Black & White, but the narration was too quick and the film starts without an intro or build-up. It had potential, but didn’t win me completely over. Strangely, this film actually won a Short Film Award. It’s worth at least maybe one viewing.

RATE: 6/10

Director, writer: Matthew Kalish
