"Sing Along" is a comedy/drama about a boy afraid of the world; his only way to survive intimidating situations is to picture life as a musical. Set in New York City, the film is currently in pre-production and is slated to shoot in early October.

Right now, the cast includes Alice Ripley, Uzo Aduba, and Myles Erlick.
Four new cast members are in negotiations. Announcements to be made sometime over the next few weeks.
We are raising part of the budget on Kickstarter and have some really cool incentives, such as an invitation to the New York premiere, a meet-and-greet with the cast prior to the premiere, autographed memorabilia (script, poster), the original soundtrack, a chance to be IN THE FILM, an invitation to the wrap party, or bring some of the cast to your hometown for a private screening. The site will go live next week!
It’s 10:30PM and I’m laying down MY vocals on the demo tracks to send to professional Broadway singers. I never claimed to be musically talented but I am visualizing each and every member of the cast snickering when they listen to my rendition of their songs. Fortunately Alice’s demo was done by Kathy Fisher and the adjustments I made to the lyrics weren’t enough to constitute a redo on my part.
At least it will give them something to make fun of me for on set.
I’ve done 68 storyboards. Only 22 left and the entire thing will be done. Then the fun can really start! (I am not sure if I am being facetious or not… there is definitely truth and tongue-in-cheek in the idea of pre-production and its massive undertaking being “fun”).
