Cara and Mike, in the early stages of a relationship, ask each other: “Do you ever wonder if the person you’re seeing isn’t the right person for you?”. As they embark on their mission to answer that question, the "EnLove" app will do its best to seek out their Mr. or Mrs. right. Thanks in some part to the advice of their close friends, Cara and Mike embark on a dating spree: no match will be left unturned (if only they can be persuaded to disconnect it from their phone.)

Director Biography - Andrew Musselman

Andrew is an actor, writer and producer with numerous television and film credits, and an international theatre resume, having performed in Canada, the United States and Europe. He is a member of the U.S. based multi-media production company, New Neighborhood, founded by the Emmy nominated, Pulitzer finalist writer, Rolin Jones.

Soon after graduating from the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art, he played a lead role in the Hallmark Movie La Femme Musketeer. He was in the Laurent Cantet film Foxfire, and his television appearances include Defiance (SyFy Network), Copper (BBC America), Suits (USA Network), Reign (CW Network), Hemlock Grove (Netflix), Murdoch Mysteries (City/CBC), Being Erica (CBC), Flashpoint (CTV), JPod (CBC) and The Listener (CTV).

In theatre, Andrew was in the World Premiere of Rolin Jones’ These Paper Bullets!, with original music by Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong, which premiered at Yale Rep, and is getting set to tour to the Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles, and the Atlantic Theater in New York. He was also in the World Premieres of Butcher and Greenland, both by the Governor General and Canadian Screen Award winning Nicolas Billon. Butcher will be transferring to Toronto’s Theatre Centre this fall. He has performed the one-man show Catalpa in Ireland, Belgium, Atlantic Canada and Toronto, where he earned a Dora Award nomination. He has played Romeo on an Ireland tour, done Stones in His Pockets twice (Festival Antigonish and The Globe in Regina), developed a three-man version of Dylan Thomas’ Under Milkwood (also in Ireland), played the New York Fringe Festival and the London Fringe Festival, where he won the award for Best Solo Performance.

His production work includes Catalpa, which he also starred in, as well as the darkly comedic BravoFACT Everything Must Go, which he also wrote and which played at festivals across Canada. He was a co-creator, producer and writer of the website, a comedy incubator that produced thirteen original sketches, many of which aired on BiteTV. He is getting set to join the writing room for I Didn’t Order This, a web series produced by O.P.C., and is currently developing a concept for a solo-theatre show.

He has been nominated for multiple theatre awards, and is the recipient of a Beinecke Fellowship from Yale School of Drama.

Director Statement

Committed-ish is about the hopeless plight of trying to find love in the world of location-based mobile dating apps. It’s about the slow drain on your self-esteem as you hunt for that little message-notification-dopamine hit. It’s about liking profiles, sending winks, adding favourites and swiping right. It’s about the let down when you realize your potential mate (or friend with benefits) is a dud.

Ultimately, it’s about the promise that someone better, someone perfect is out there in cyberspace. In the vein of Forgetting Sarah Marshall or the series Togetherness, the comedy in Committed-ish comes from the desperation of our heroes Mike and Cara. We laugh at their misfortune because we recognize in it so much of our own. Tonally and stylistically, the aim will be to play up that desperation, to disempower our leads and invite the audience to laugh at their struggles.

One means of achieving disempowerment is to create a beautifully shot, heightened, aspirational world. This is the land of Uber Black, Holt Renfrew, 889 Yoga, repurposed industrial spaces, Japanese cheese cake and Prohibition era cocktail bars.
It’s almost as though we are creating a world where such struggles shouldn’t exist. Mike and Cara should seem just a half step behind their peers, struggling to get their shit together and find their place amidst all these trendy, put-together urbanites.

This gives the subtle impression that our characters could get lost in the multitude around them, that they are fighting an uphill battle against insignificance. We sense the desperate fear of loneliness behind their venture into online dating.

True to the Rom-Com genre, we are creating a blue-sky aesthetic as the film is inviting and pleasing to look at. This will heighten the stakes for our main characters, making their mis-steps, set-backs and foibles that much more palpable and perversely, that much funnier.
