Cindy Napolitano, an Italian-American living in Boston's Charlestown neighborhood, is all set to receive her "MRS." from local catch, Enzo Calderazzo. According to her co-workers and friends, she's got it all. But how come she's starting to feel sick, like there's a "little pit in her stomach," as the big day approaches? Originally shot in 16mm black and white film, on location in Boston and Melrose, MA, this film screened at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston "Boston Film Artists" series, the Brooklyn Film Festival, Women Make Movies, and others. Written, directed, photographed, and edited by Rosie McCobb.
It's a hot, steamy summer in the city, and someone's got to get up, get out, and walk the dog. Ms. X, yet again, can't wake her snoring boyfriend, and it's up to her to hit the streets and navigate her way around what she perceives as the city's frequent annoyances. But while Ms. X experiences one reality, her clever and loyal pooch sees something else entirely. During "dawg walkin'," there's a fine line between harassment and titillation. Shot in 8mm black and white film, on location in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and written, directed, photographed, and edited by Rosie McCobb.
This is the story of one man's long, drawn out, and frustratingly ambiguous friendship with a female pal who - much to his chagrin - just thinks he's "amazing." Shot on location in Brooklyn and Manhattan, NYC, "amazing" was conceived, written, and edited by Paul Lang, and also stars Paul and Anastasia Barnes. The film was art directed, styled, and photographed by Rosie McCobb on 24FPS video. Paul and Rosie met in 1998 while working at the James Beard award-winning, Italian restaurant Cafe Louis in Boston, MA, and have remained friends and fellow film enthusiasts after both relocated at different times to NYC in the early 2000's. Paul is currently working with a writing team based in LA on an as yet unnamed TV project about his experiences working in the culinary industry as a sommelier, chef, waiter, and wine business owner. Anastasia is currently based in LA, and is a writer and comedic actress who created and stars in the web-based "The Ruby Besler Show." www.therubybeslershow.com
