The Wishing Well              
(12 min)

In this popup-book fairytale come to life, a wishing well
armed with little mechanical cups of love and
happiness, beckons Sally, a delightfully-awkward
cherub of a woman. Her desperate little heart, masked
behind plump rosy cheeks, is about to be challenged
with the promise of love when she goes head-to-head
with “The Wishing Well.” But that is only half the story.
“The Wishing Well” is actually an experimental one-
man production created by California based actor,
director Rod Maxwell. There was no crew, no one else
behind or in front of the camera. Maxwell transformed
himself into all of the 26 men, women, and children that
appear in the film. He created all the prosthetics and
fat suits, applied to himself, by himself, and then shot
each character in front of a simple greenscreen
backdrop in his living room, using a DV camera, with all
post work done on an Apple computer. It is a
demonstration of what can be accomplished by one
person from within a home studio. Please visit www. for more information.
