A Double Layover Premiere!

The team has been planning a blog for some time now, so we figured what better way to premiere the new LayoverIdeas Blog than by blogging about last week's announcement of the WORLD PREMIERE of the new LAYOVER film?!?!

Too cool for words... but we'll try.

The film's premise is that a young Parisian woman, Simone, is flying from Paris to Singapore, with a connection in Los Angeles.

So far, so good, right? Well, if you're reading this, you probably travel a fair bit, and know all about flight delays, cancelled flights and unplanned layovers.

A missed connection or a new opportunity?
Simone finds herself at LAX on a layover. Soon, a mysterious motorcyclist convinces Simone to ride along through the glittering nightlife scene of LA. Sometimes the places you don’t plan visiting are the best.

We're intrigued. How about you?

If you're thinking like we were when we first learned of the film, you're wondering when you can see it, right?

Well, last week's big announcement is that Layover will have it's World Premiere in competition at the 2014 Seattle International Film Festival later this month.

Joshua Caldwell (@Joshua_Caldwell), the film's Director, Executive Producer and all around brainchild (what do you want to bet that the plot was cooked up on a cocktail napkin on one too many airport layovers?), is from Seattle. Here's what he said when asked about the decision to premiere at SIFF:

"I was born and raised in Seattle. Travis (Oberlander), my producer, was as well. In fact, we met each other in elementary school. As such, SIFF felt like the perfect venue to World Premiere our film. We couldn't be more excited to be showing our debut feature film at our hometown film festival."

If you can't go, add yourself to the list of people rooting for Layover and want to see it at a theatre near you! Or on the seatback of your next flight...

CONGRATULATIONS to Joshua and his Layover film team - thanks for giving us the perfect excuse to kick off our new LayoverIdeas blog.
