UM film student is looking for a modern home for a film!

a2modern was contacted by Anna Baumgarten, UM student who would like to have access to a modern home for her film project. We asked Anna to write up a description of what she is doing and what she is interested in. If anyone is interested in being part of the project, contact Anna directly. Thanks!

“My name is Anna Baumgarten, and I am a Screen Arts and Cultures (SAC) student at UofM. I’m currently producing a short film for the University’s highest level production class, SAC 423. SAC 423 is an artistic collaborative effort between students from LS&A, Ross School of Business, Penny W. Stamps School of Art and Design, and the School of Music Theater and Dance, in which we create a 20-30min film which goes on to premiere at the International Traverse City Film Festival. From there, it will enter the global festival circuit.

The film is a coming of age story about a dangerously unhealthy friendship between two teenage girls, which deals with blackmail and bullying.

When I discovered a2modern, I was thrilled! My production designer has been enthusing about mid-century modern architecture as the focal point of our film, and I’m hoping that the members of this community can help us out. We’re hoping to shoot several scenes of our film inside a modern home during a weekend in March or April (currently our preference is March 14th, 15th, and 16th or the 28th, 29th and 30th). We have a talented, experienced crew, that knows how to respect a space and capture it beautifully.

Here is what we’re looking for in a house more specifically :
– We would like to shoot interiors: a master bedroom (ideally with a walk-in or large closet), a living room, and a kitchen – open concept kitchen/living with a foyer area is ideally what we’re looking for.
– modern furnishings
– We’re pretty flexible, so even if you’re home doesn’t match our description perfectly, we’re still interested!

If anyone is willing to talk further with me regarding our film production, please feel free to contact me at I’m looking forward to hearing from you!”
