‘Last Stop for Paul’ invite for screening‘Last Stop for Paul’ invite for screening

In the Spring of 2005, writer, producer, director Neil Mandt and cinematographer Marc Carter set out on an around the world journey to film the story about two guys traveling to the famous Full Moon Party in Thailand. All they had was one camera, two wireless microphones, three batteries and a rough story outline. They traveled without a crew, a cast or having scouted any locations, all of this was to be done on the fly.

There weren’t any casting calls along the way, just strangers picked up on the street to either act in a scene or hold the camera as Neil and Marc delivered their improvised lines.

The outcome is a smart, funny and poignant story about world travel.

I programmed this indie pic for the Phuket (Thailand) Film Festival which I directed in October 2007. Audience reaction to the movie was fantastic. Movie had the second largest audience of the film festival and missed winning a People’s Choice Award by a hair.

Now, for a limited time only in Los Angeles, beginning March 7 at the Laemmle Sunset 5 in Los Angeles and the AMC Broadway 4 in Santa Monica, this quirky mockumentary will be screened – “Last Stop for Paul” – don’t miss it!
