LOS ANGELES— 50K and a Call Girl: A Love
Story
, a mockumentary drama produced by J.P. McMahon and Tristan Drew,
has been released internationally on VOD and DVD by digital distributor
FilmBuff.
Written by Ross Patterson and directed by Seth Grossman, the
film tells the story of Ross (played by Patterson) who has been diagnosed with
a brain tumor and told he only has a few weeks to live. Ross sets off on a
cross country journey armed with a “fuck it list” of things to do. He is
accompanied by his best friend (played by Grossman), who documents the trip,
his friend’s girlfriend (Lauren Aboulafia) and a call girl (Jessie Wiseman).

The fourth feature produced by McMahon, Drew and Patterson, the
film has drawn broad critical praise. Under the Gun called it “lighthearted and
uplifting” and “a great addition to the mockumentary genre.” Critic C.A. Milson
called it, “A great movie that is a must-see.”
Production of the film spanned 40 days and 26 states.
Shooting was done documentary style and all the events depicted in it were
captured live, including Ross’s skydiving adventure, trip to a World Series
game and hallucinogenic mushroom trip in Joshua Tree. “It’s a film about
relationships and love,” says Patterson. “I want people to ask themselves what
they would do if they had only a limited amount of time left on earth.”
Producers J.P. McMahon and Tristan Drew, principals of the
Los Angeles-based production company A
Common Thread
, have developed a reputation for producing smart,
well-crafted independent films that are also commercially viable. The three
previous films that they produced with Patterson, FDR: American Badass, Poolboy:
Drowning Out the Fury
and Darnell
Dawkins: Mouth Guitar Legend
, have all been sold to international
distributors.
“We’re four for four,” says Patterson. “Jay and Tristan look
for the best talent and they nurture that talent while letting them do what
they do best. They give artists the freedom to make great art, while also
keeping an eye on financial success.”
