UCB Comedy will be releasing The Jane, a prize-winning short film about monogamy and desire, on April 13 via Vimeo. The film features Nate Dern (Fox Searchlight’s Youth), Veronica Osorio (Hail, Caesar!), Bridey Elliott (Ft. Tilden, Grand Jury Prize SXSW), Kate Riley (Gossip Girl), and Siobhan Thompson (Broad City), and was written and directed by Trevor Williams (MTV, Comedy Central) for Pig Apple Productions.
The Jane was awarded “Best Screenplay in a Short Film” at the LA Indie Film Festival and has been featured in the Oscar-Qualifying Cleveland, International Film Festival, Dances with Films, and the USA Film Festival (finalist Best Short).
Written and directed by Trevor Williams, a veteran of UCB Comedy (the digital arm of famed comedy theatre the Upright Citizens Brigade), The Jane is a “choose your own adventure” story that challenges notions of love, monogamy, fate, and our ability to make decisions in general. The film explores one man’s dilemma as he is presented with an unique sexual proposition by two women at a hotel bar while waiting for takeout food for his girlfriend. What follows is an exploration of nearly every possible way the night could go.
The film will be online here starting April 13.
