About the film:
in the Can is the story of Nicky, an aspiring young director, who has the dream of every filmmaker that one day he'd make it big in Hollywood. His dream suddenly comes true in the form of a mysterious stranger, Lou Lumire, who is a self-proclaimed Hollywood producer. Lumire makes Nicky the ultimate once-in-a-lifetime offer, the chance to direct his very first feature film production! After the ink dries on the contract, Nicky realizes there's one catch. In order for him to finally live out his dream, he has to arrange everything by himself from hiring the actors and crew, to renting the filmmaking equipment, and writing a screenplay within a matter of several days-a daunting prospect even for a seasoned filmmaker.
In the Can stars Bobby Siebert, Nyle DiMarco, Janel Schmidt, Gabriel Paulone, Dawn Jani Birley, Jon Savage and Danny Froehle.
