Here’s your daily dose of an indie film in progress; at the end of the week, you’ll have the chance to vote for your favorite.
In the meantime: Is this a movie you’d want to see? Tell us in the comments.
San Francisco is to adults what DisneyLand is to kids. Through my years of living in SF, we’ve learned that the people here tend to be blessed with Peter Pan syndrome…you know, that “I won’t to grow up” mentality. That’s life in a city where every event is attended in costume, most nights include a sing-a-long, laughter (among other things) is heard through paper thin Victorian walls, sunrises and sunsets can get confusing, dance parties erupt behind a bicycle with a boombox, rules don’t like to get followed and risks are constantly being taken. This is SanFranLand!

About the Production:
“As a woman and someone who moved to San Francisco to start all over again after life changing events, I wanted to tell this story about that journey and the friendships I made in a city I grew to absolutely adore. The characters in SanFranLand exemplify strong, yet flawed women, navigating through their ever-complicated urban lives. While working and playing around the clock they explore themselves, embrace love, make good and bad decisions and foster deep friendships. SanFranLand is a story about picking up and starting over. It is about reinventing a life you love.” — Ryan Lynch
