Love Is Afoot! is a completely original, outlandishly funny, ‘out-of-the box’ musical romantic comedy feature film. It’s the classic boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy finally gets girl… and her feet love story turned upside down. Think of it as Singin’ in the Rain meets The Farrelly Brothers.
Set in the late 1940s and early 50s, the movie will have the look, feel and smell of the big MGM smash hits from that era with a big band style that harkens back to the golden age of Hollywood but still finds a way to fit in perfectly with contemporary musical film and theater. It re-imagines the classic Gene Kelly/Fred Astaire musical albeit with updated subject matter that brings relevance and an edge to today’s savvy audience. With Love Is Afoot!, our goal is to pay tribute to this classic style of musical during Hollywood’s Golden Age.
