Katie Travis Films presents NOT TITLED, a dramatic short film. Two playwrights are literally locked in a room until they can create a story that will save both of their wavering careers. However, two creative minds could not have more different approaches. Tension arises when Emily Praxford (Kyla Machacek) objects to Jane Warren’s (Tia Sirovy) edgy approach to Act 3 and clings to her uncommon and rather traditional moral code. Can these unlikely collaborators find a common ground and write a story that will inspire the world to hope or despair?

ABOUT THE PROJECT
NOT TITLED was filmed in October 2015 and was the first film to be shot at STUDIO 155 in Hector, Minnesota. The purpose behind the making of this short film was to continue director Katie Travis’ training specifically in the realms of a dialogue-heavy production piece and the shaping of performances. This project was inspired by Katie Travis’ film school experience. This artistic achievement was entirely created by a volunteer cast and crew. Post-production was completed by the first week of November 2015. The film debuted with a sneak peek 24 hour online screening on February 16, 2016. Not Titled ventured through the film festival circut in 2016 and is now available online.
