Did You Know?

The idea to set a movie in an elevator was inspired by the hectic elevators at the American Film Market in Santa Monica and taken to the next level because the screenwriter lives in an historic hotel (the former Rice Hotel in Houston) that has been converted to lofts. The building hosts weddings and other events and the mayhem behind the scenes can be observed as tenants go back and forth to the parking garage. Also, the role of Will was written specifically for Tod Huntington, an actor the writer/producer had auditioned for her project about The Big Bopper, "The Day the Music Died".See more »

Down, Down, Down..., 8 April 2013
Author: riantgorkette

This is a horribly produced movie. I feel like this was a college project that some first year film student produced. It is painful to watch. The audio is all over the place. Elevator music and main actor's mic are too loud, you can't really hear what people on his headset are saying. The some key plot moments are rushed and yet there are scenes that don't lead to anything worthwhile but are dragged out. I will admit that the idea behind the movie is cute, and I really wish it had worked out better. They should have cast the characters better, maybe that would have helped. Even if they had added a few funny lines for the actors to work off of, maybe then the viewers could find something charming about the characters.
