WAITING FOR TOMORROW TO WAKE UP A SHORT FILM SHOT IN LOS ANGELES FOR MONSTER CHILDREN

MIKE PISCITELL CREATED A SHORT FILM TITLED “WAITING FOR TOMORROW TO WAKE UP” FOR AUSTRALIAN MAGAZINE MONSTER CHILDREN. SHOT IN LOS ANGELES, “WAITING FOR TOMORROW TO WAKE UP” FOLLOWS A GROUP OF TEENAGERS OVER THE COURSE OF AN EVENING AS THEY HOP AROUND TOWN FROM SPOT TO SPOT. THE FILM DOCUMENTS RECKLESS YOUTH, LOVING AND LIVING WITHOUT A CARE IN THE WORLD. “WE WANTED TO CAPTURE THE FEELING YOU HAVE AROUND 17, 18,” MIKE SAID IN A RECENT INTERVIEW WITH KARMALOOP. “YOU CANT GET INTO BARS, ONLY ONE OF YOUR FRIENDS HAS A CAR, NO ONE WORKS SO THERE’S NO REASON TO SLEEP AND YOU WANT TO BE IN LOVE WITH SOMETHING.”

THE FILM PREMIERED LAST WEEK AT LOS ANGELES’ WILD HONEY STUDIOS AND IS FEATURED IN THE LATEST ISSUE OF MONSTER CHILDREN. “WAITING FOR TOMORROW TO WAKE UP” WAS ALSO RECENTLY SELECTED AS ONE OF VIMEO’S STAFF PICKS.
