About Some Guys
Some Guys are Bigger Than Others is a short film by Made In SI films about a "Morissey" fan named Jim, who is trying to convince his friends that he can wrestle. When his two friends Devin and Kenny bring him to a Lucha Libre competition, Jim has to do whatever he can to survive.
In 2013, Director Geoff Celis was in the process of finishing his first action/comedy screenplay when he first conceptualized Some Guys. It all started with an image of a series of Spanish-speaking Luchadores surrounding a guy who didn't know the language, wondering how he ended up in this mess. Geoff took this idea and worked it out with writer/comedian Tim Duffy, who created the main script. Geoff decided that if they could win a grant for a short film, that he would start producing the project. Later that year, the short film project was awarded a grant from Staten Island Arts, a non-profit arts organization. Once the idea became a reality, Geoff brought on former collaborators Casey Jost and Kevin Devlin to help Tim flesh out the rest of the story. The rest of the team was assembled from co-workers and friends in the business. After hearing about the buzz from the set, and reading the script, comedian Brian Quinn decided to make a cameo. In 2014, the film went into production on location at SI Makerspace with the help of the Warriors of Wrestling. The whole team is excited to finish and enter the 2015 film festival year.
