With Each New Project, Writer, Actor and Producer Anis Maknoija Is Finding New Muscles To Stretch

Raised in Houston and just lately launched to the Los Angeles artistic world by way of a ardour for images, Anis Maknoija already has a handful of quick movie tasks beneath his belt, together with dramatic quick Artifice, the unconventionally humorous With Curiosity and the multi-layered Breathe.

He’s now in post-production on a fourth quick, JACK , a slasher-style horror story from Land Ahoy! Movies.

Earlier this yr, when he returned to Texas to resolve a number of COVID-19 associated enterprise points, Maknoija carved out a while to collaborate with director Frederick Tabiyus Nah IV on a screenplay for the venture.

“The idea has been bubbling around for some time, but other projects kept coming up and this kept getting pushed off,” Maknoija stated. “It took a significant change of pace in my daily life to get the chance to really focus on this idea. The trip to Houston required a lot of my time, but it allowed me the chance to set a lot of other things aside for a short time. It’s interesting how [the creative process] worked itself out.”

Handing the tough draft of the script off to Joseph Carlin, a author really useful by Frederick Tabiyus Nah IV, Maknoija wrapped up his tasks in Houston and hustled again to Los Angeles to maintain up the momentum.

Within the quick, Maknoija’s Bruce is an govt at a quickly-growing tech firm getting ready to go public. With a day-in-the-life method, the viewer watches as Bruce prepares for the conferences to launch a brand new product in addition to set up the valuation of his firm. His environment mirror his success. His fiancé Liz is all the pieces you’ll anticipate in an elite relationship – good, horny, sensual – an ideal match for the clever, enticing and decided Bruce. Their residence is opulent. Arriving at work, the boardroom is opulent. His fellow executives are able to benefit from the chance. Because the valuation deal is finalized, Bruce’s razor-sharp instincts are on show.

Later the identical day, at lunch with Liz, it turns into obvious Bruce’s good world isn’t all it seems to be. That evening, when one other alternative presents itself, somebody strikes with the same enthusiasm and precision as seen earlier within the boardroom.

“This project has been one of my most successful, I think,” Maknoija stated. “The conditions we worked through were challenging, but the whole process reinforced my love of the creative process. There was PPE everywhere. Everyone was tested for COVID twice a day. Everyone, the cast and the crew, everyone on this project really did outstanding work. Now, we’re editing, creating the sound design and all the finishing touches.”

“Being away from LA was tough for me,” Maknoija continued. “I felt like I was losing touch with my creativity. I felt like I was missing out on something. As it turns out, that something was the excitement of putting together a film project.”
