My Secret Friend
My Secret Friend was an innovative way of developing a series. Forcing directors, writers, and producers to relinquish control to create strong three-dimensional characters.
My Secret Friend follows the trajectory of randomly assigning a psycho-physical condition to 10 actors, who then create non-scripted improvised characters in front of an audience of writers. The writers witness the actors’ process of character development in order to construct original screenplays involving those characters. The writers then hand the scripts over to a filmmaker, who directs 5 separate web-series involving the improvised characters. This film chronicles the process by which a team of creatives must rely on collaboration in order to create. My Secret Friend see’s a way of approaching inter-disciplinary art; that relies completely upon the adherence to the basic definition of collaboration.
To believe in and be inspired by complete and non-judgmental immersion into the unknown My Secret Friend unfolds the creative process, but that they are somehow part of it.
