Paul Dano And Stoya Trailer Flatscreen

One way to break into directing has always been to find a young, unsigned band and offer to do a music video. A new way: make a trailer for a book. These days, there are more and more trailers for books, and many of them take the form of short films. All you need is one hot independent film actor (Paul Dano) and one hip crossover porn star (Stoya). Case in point: the mumblecore-meets-porno stylings for Adam Wilson’s debut novel Flatscreen, forthcoming from Harper Perennial. Wilson is the Associate Editor of the New York Egoist, a blogger for BlackBook Magazine, and his novel is described as “a coming-of-age story about a young man trying to become a new person in a world where nothing is new.” In addition to Dano and Stoya, the short also features Sara Cicilian, Paul Rome, Harper Perennial editor Michael Signorelli, and Wilson. It was directed by Gabriel Wilson.
