Mr. Higgins and Adam

Plot: In a world populated by humans and puppets, Adam is discovered on you tube by country sensation, Mr. Higgins and the two embark on adventures of life, love and music.

A WORD FROM AARON:

It’s no secret that this movie is way out of my typical genre. Not only a drama, but a movie that is set behind the folk / rock music scene. I took singing lessons for 4 years, it’s really my third passion (first being movies and second writing) After seeing “A Star is Born” I felt like I should somehow do something with music, but I had no story. I didn’t want to copy that movie as I think it’s amazing the way it is.

I then re-watched episodes of an old show no one seems to talk about, “Greg the Bunny.” Set in a universe of puppets and humans, it’s a show I really enjoy (along with the semi-sequel “Warren the Ape” and I thought merging my love of puppets would be the way to go.

So, merging these two genres together was something I had never seen, so I thought I should do it. My second challenge was singing, sure I could listen to myself-but I hate the sound of my voice, so I enlisted in my friend, Dan Barracuda. He was my vocal coach for a long time and helped me out with pointers, he was a crucial part of this movie.

Secondly was the green screen. I would have loved to film on a real stage with real lights, but I couldn’t get a location. So, my mom and I worked tirelessly to make those scenes as real as possible, I think they came out great. My mom has that perfectionist eye that I don’t have.

This movie is an odd one, but actually it deals in topics that are important, anxiety and self doubt, and I try to portray them in a real way. I really hope you enjoy this labor of love. 🙂
