My fellow producer and the writer of Cash for Gold, Deborah Puette, brought me the script for the short back in the summer of 2011, and I immediately saw in it a story I could care about. The story moved my heart, and I wanted to share it with as many people as possible.
Based on the success of that 7 minute film, we’re now making the feature, and we couldn’t be more excited.
If as a society we are to truly reach our highest potential, we must look beyond our differences to see the good in each other, our shared struggles and the ways we can help each other. With Cash for Gold, I like to think we're putting something into the world that lifts us all up, even by a little bit, even for a few moments at a time. I hope you enjoy our film and take something from it, just as I did and continue to do.
Deborah Puette, Writer/Producer
Deborah Puette has written numerous personal essays and short stories, many of which she has performed in various venues across the country. She is also an Ovation Award-winning theater producer. Cash for Gold (short) marks her first foray into writing and producing for the screen. For a full list of her credits, visit IMDb.
I knew I wanted to write a story about unlikely allies, about two seemingly very different people who deeply affect the other's life in a matter of minutes. It's a chance encounter that neither of them will ever forget, and it resonated deeply with audiences who wanted to know more about Grace and Ehsan, how they got where they are, where they were going next. So I banged my head against a wall for a few years, and now we have a feature script.
I can’t wait to move into production on our feature — this film is a sweet, dark, pretty little baby, and we’re going to do our best by her. Stand by, and thanks.
