Finks moves with ‘August’

Scribe getting helming debut with indie comedy

Screenwriter Christopher Fink marks his directorial debut with the independently financed romantic comedy “Moving August.”

Written by Fink and Joseph Craig, “August” is the story of a young photographer who, while moving out of his apartment, falls in love with the woman who is moving in. Their wacky group of friends tangle in conflicts and romances as they help each other make the move.

The ensemble cast features Eddie McClintock (NBC’s “Stark Raving Mad”), Sarah Wynter (“Lost Souls”), Alexandra Adi (“American Pie”), Brenda Bakke, Todd Tesen, Josh Holloway and Gavin Perry. The pic just wrapped shooting in Los Angeles.

Fink and Craig are producing the low-budget “August,” the debut production of Fink’s Canvas Entertainment banner. The film is a co-production between Canvas and film and television entity District, which is producing the Showtime telepic “X-Rated,” starring Emilio Estevez and Charles Sheen, and “Benny D’s First Shakedown,” directed by Tony Vitale (“Kiss Me Guido”).

Fink previously directed several short films, commercials and plays. Canvas will focus on comedy projects. It is developing titles “The Pig,” a romantic comedy; “The 47 Second Minute,” a quirky comedy; and “The Mighty Vulcan,” a superhero spoof.
