WHO WOULD YOU LOSE… TO WIN?
Your Friends Close follows the lives of Jason & Becca, a video game designer team and romantic couple, who are moving to Paris for their dream job: completing a game that may change the world. Their going-away party takes a fascinating turn when those plans are called into question, and the night devolves into a dangerous game of interpersonal manipulation that spares no one.
This independent thriller/comedy was the result of collaboration between director/actor/producer Jocelyn Kelvin and writer/actor/producer Brock Wilbur. Principal photography was completed in summer 2011 in Los Angeles, and the majority of the film was funded through a successful Kickstarter campaign. Talented cast & crew, as well as donations of time and energy from incredible supporters, nearly disproved the film’s dire thesis on friendship. Nearly.
