Estra Love

Job Position(s): Location Manager
Project Type: Short Film
Job Date: January 2021
Compensation: TBD
Union Status: Non-Union

Surreal kinetic drama needs a resourceful location manager to find the final locations. We need about 4 locations. 3 of them are acquirable(for short scenes). We haven’t found the other main location(1 of the main locations). The rest of the locations have already been picked out.


Estra Love is a surreal exploration on the exposure and condition of human identity and spirit. Set with moments of light-heartedness and brokenness, Estra(Latina) navigates her next steps of life through conflicting worlds. Estra, in blurred lines, sits and smokes a cigarette. Playing the piano doesn’t help. Her friend Joy, does all she can to ease her mind through card games. Estra’s voices attack her like shards of glass. Her reflections are not who she is. She is lost in a dark, foggy, room – trapped in the recesses of her mind. The ocean waves though are quite calming.

The story ‘Estra Love’ is an intense immersion into mental illness, self-care, awareness, and surrealism. Under all the cosmetics is love. How do we discover this love and have it come forth as a well that overflows. The film will hit the festival circuit leading up to the Academy. It will also be shown at educational institutions and various circuits.
