Welcome to New York
Short Film by Steven Tyler O'Connor
Starring: Sherry Vine
Welcome to New York is about unique first experiences in New York City. This 30-minute short film, starring Sherry Vine as Dr. Kitty Rosenblatt, the unorthodox yet wildly successful therapist, gives a close look into the lives of 5 therapy patients, who are adjusting to NYC life.
This short film, written and directed by Steven Tylor O’Connor, is a humorous look into the lives of five characters, who are trying to balance daily life, while looking for love and following their dreams in the big apple. At the start of the film, each of the characters have one thing in common, their unconventional, eccentric and humorous therapist. By the end of the film, O’Connor cleverly depicts how each of the five characters lives are intertwined.
I especially appreciate how Dr. Rosenblatt gives her patient (Mick) a dumbfounded look, after a conversation where Mick explains his profession about performing as a “man in a dress.” This particular part, gives a clear understanding, with unspoken words, just how ‘normal,’ the LGBT community sees itself.
O’Connor has a unique ability in his script writing, to give any audience something to smile about and relate to, not to mention, a craving for the sequel. Kudos on another successful film!
A Fairy Tale
Short Film by Steven Tyler O'Connor
Starring: Steven Tyler O'Connor & Sherry Vine
This short film portrays the anxiety of prom night… to go or not to go, especially when you are gay and have no date. Main character Jack (Steven Tyler O’Connor) magically meets fairy Godmother Rose (Sherry Vine), who comes to the rescue and puts a comical spin on the familiar fairy tales of Jack and Jill and Cinderella. I smiled, chuckled, and certainly related to the witty euphemisms. In 10 short minutes, Steven Tyler O’Connor brings to life the uncomfortable young adult moments we wish to forget, as well as the moments we will remember for a lifetime! I suspect that writer, director and actor Steven Tyler O’Connor will be making waves in the LGBT community as well as the ‘movie-making’ industry!
Short Film by Eric Casaccio
Starring: Aaron Merken
Randall, or known in drag as Sofia (played by Aaron Merken) portrays the life of a struggling actor in this 18 minute short film. Although not all of us are actors or dress in drag, many will relate to the life stresses that create avoidance. Most comomly avoided is the ringing phone... due to family distance and repetetive collection calls.
From desperate to confident, Casaccio delivers a happy ending that is sure to make you smile.
