A Kickstarter campaign has launched to help fund a musical short film featuring Mary that will be written and directed by Mary’s good friend, Justin Carlton. Studio Apartment is a fresh take on the musical, exploring what it means to create alone and together. The short stars actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Ryan Kattner (Honus Honus) of the band Man Man.
The plot summary is as follows:
Samantha (Winstead) is a young songwriter trying to record in her apartment. Frustrated by the interruption of her sister and her own sense of self, Samantha decides to take a walk. On her walk she meets a stranger sleeping in a bush who can’t remember the name of a song stuck in his head. Samantha remembers the song, it’s one of her father’s favorites. She and the Stranger slip into a musical, singing “Jackie Wilson Said” by Van Morrison. Reminded of her love of music, Samantha returns home, ready to create.
