"Rockstar" - Short Film
A teenager overcomes adversity through his music. His overbearing, unsupportive and constantly arguing parents make life practically unbearable for Jared, but he discovers that truly BELIEVING in oneself is the key to happiness and success. Jared becomes inspired to "dream BIG", realizing that his goal of becoming a RockStar may not be that farfetched after all.
From the

As an independent film director, I feel that often, the most interesting scenes in a film include the unexpected things, the moments that were never actually specifically written in the script.  When an actor takes a beat or two longer to get his emotions or thoughts together while camera is rolling, but the scene has not technically begun.  Sometimes those quiet moments are the most honest and fresh.  He is not “acting”, he is simply “feeling” and building his emotions, and THAT to me is magic on film.  When we see a character literally coming to life.I had that vision in mind for my short film “Rockstar”, our lead actor Jared Scott, barely speaks a single line in the film, but through his eyes and his music we understand him, and we can feel what he is feeling.  “RockStar” is about a teenager who dreams of becoming a rock-star, the challenges he faces in his turbulent home life, and how music makes him feel.  I was lucky to have a very talented DP, Sandy Stenzel, to help capture that emotion on film.  "Rockstar",  reminds us that often we need to believe in ourselves when no one else will, and to not be afraid to dream big!  Directing this short film is close to my heart, since I once walked that exciting yet uneasy path of a rock-star.  (I was a RCA recording artist under the name Tane Cain AKA Tahnee Cain and Tryanglz).“Rockstar” is a film about “courage”, to believe in yourself when no one else seems to!I hope to enlighten and encourage the “ROCKSTAR” in all of us!
