Written by Alan Evans, produced by Classy Bird Productions
The abandoned film. Back in December, The Diaz Brothers, who originally optioned this script, dropped it from their lineup. Sean LeBard, a colleague who had just helped them win a major competition on another short film, stepped up to the plate and wanted to take over the project. So, Scott Young worked with Sean to transfer all of the pre-production work completed over to Classy Bird… and voila… here is a rough first edit of Just Right for all to view and comment on. Teamwork. When one company decided to not film this script, the other came forward and took it over. Mike Wiencek is excellent as “Kurt,” and producer/dog trainer Carla Popeney’s border collie, Archie, steals the show and, hopefully, brings tears to the viewer’s eyes. It was Alan’s suggestion that Kurt be reading “Pride & Prejudice” in the final scene. His reasoning was right on the money. It all works.
