When we first meet Warren (writer/director Alex Beh), he’s rummaging through his mementos in the basement of his soon-to-be-demolished suburban childhood home. His grizzled Pop (John Heard) is living on booze and quickly fading memories while Mom (Jean Smart) has moved on and out, now living, along with Warren’s out-of-control kid brother, with a new beau.

Interview: Jack C. Newell, Ron Falzone Chat Up Chicago Indie ‘Close Quarters’

Chicago – Director Jack C. Newell ended up meeting one of his great collaborators while taking classes at Columbia College Chicago. His future filmmaking partner turned out to not be a fellow peer, but his teacher, Ron Falzone. Together, they made the acclaimed short, “Typing,” about two Hollywood screenwriters whose brainstorming session draws inspiration from the clacking of typewriter keys in the next room.
