This Guy Made A Movie Trailer With Strangers On The Street And It's Perfect

"No script. No budget. No plan."

Posted on

JD Walsh and Mike Postalakis had this great idea to ask strangers on the street if they'd be willing to randomly film a short scene to make a MASTERPIECE. This is the final result:

JD approached a bunch of people on the street and asked if they'd be interested in making in a short film with him. He would be the only ~real~ actor.

There was no script, and it would be a collaborative effort to come up with the story.

A lot of people politely declined, but enough were happy to oblige and get their acting on.

Time to get to work!

All of it was improv, but it seemed so real and got so intense at times, that other strangers on the street intervened. JD says, "A guy really was going to fight me for yelling at a women in a wheelchair."

The final result is actually pretty great!

JD was really happy with the two bad guys. "The two villains reminded me of the bad guys from Diamonds are Forever."

Fun fact: The security guard you see was "really kicking us out of the ice skating rink."

So cool that strangers could come together on the street and create a pretty convincing trailer for a story they just made up out of nowhere!
