Private Project

Last Thursday

When Dennis got up this morning, he wasn't expecting that his bank would be robbed by a bunch of witless goons, or that they would take him hostage, but hey - it's Thursday so it's almost the weekend, right?

Writer Biography - Kevin Machate

Although he began his film career as an actor, Kevin quickly moved into Producing and eventually Directing. His films and screenplays have won numerous awards worldwide having been screened in various cities in the US, Europe, South America, Oceania, and Asia.
Kevin has directed six short films and his credits as a producer have exceeded 50 at the time of this writing.

His recent works include three short series starring Golden Globe and Tony Award winner Barry Bostwick and Saturn Award Winner Doug Jones, along with a series of short musical and educational videos (With puppets!) starring Ed Helms.

He is a veteran of the US Air Force and a three-time Guinness World Record holder.

Kevin is currently submitting his short screenplay called "Last Thursday", a lowbrow comedy about a bank robbery.

This is what Slamdance says about the script: "Last Thursday is a strongly comedic bank heist thriller with a great final twist that the reader doesn’t see coming. The dialogue is witty, expressive and full of grit (especially in the bank robbers’ dialogue), and the lead characters are vividly rendered and feel well developed."
