From Script to Screen: The Making of "Day in the Life

Day in the Life," the upcoming short film written and directed by Anderson B. Cox, is about to embark on its production journey. This blog post provides a behind-the-scenes look at the film as it enters the pre-production phase, highlighting the stress and challenges faced by the protagonist, Marcus, as he navigates a very difficult day. From his wife's shop to a run-in with the police, explore the creative processes involved in scriptwriting, casting, cinematography, and production design as we begin to bring this powerful story to life. This exclusive film will be available on Kayatick Styles.
Marcus and Marissa's love story began in high school, where they were inseparable sweethearts. Despite their deep connection, Marissa's parents disapproved of their relationship, largely due to Marcus's troubled past. Over time, Marcus turned his life around, adopting a blue-collar lifestyle to support his family. However, Marissa's parents remained distant, missing out on their first grandchild's milestones due to their unwillingness to accept Marcus.
As years passed, the couple had more children, and the grandmother's heart softened. Determined not to repeat past mistakes, she extended an olive branch, hoping to reconcile and be part of her grandchildren's lives.
