Love Stalker, a feature film written and directed by Matt Glasson.

Synopsis – Love Stalker is the story of a 30-something bar-hopping player named Pete (writer/director Matt Glasson) who lives to “play the game” and bed as many women as possible. Things change for him once he meets Stephanie (Rachel Chapman), a web-savvy relationship blogger, and the two begin to get romantic. However, when she discovers the extent of his player ways, she ends the relationship, driving Pete to stalker-like lengths in his rom-com inspired efforts to win her back.

Love Stalker premiered at the St. Louis Int’l Film Fest last year. We currently are selling the DVD off of our website and have screenings coming up next month in Chicago and ST. Louis.

Bio – Matt Glasson (co-director/co-producer/co-writer/actor) has been into movies since his mother first took him to see Bambi as a kid. Born and raised in the Northwestern suburbs of Chicago, he was drawn to the arts as a musician, performer and later photographer and video-maker. His passion for cinema compelled him to attend Columbia College’s acclaimed film program where he further honed his skills as a filmmaker and writer. In 1998, Glasson moved to New York City where he started the performance art rock band God The Band, which went onto cult status in Brooklyn’s underground music scene before disbanding in 2002. In the years since, he has worked as a freelance video editor, photographer and director for various music videos and short films. In 2010, along with his partners B. Bowls MacLean and David P. Ohligher, Glasson co-wrote/co-produced and co-directed the feature film Love Stalker, in which he also acts as the principal character Pete. Love Stalker marks his debut feature as a filmmaker.

One evening while rendezvousing with a prostitute in a back alley Richard is shadowed by a man, Jules Whitby, who has invented a prototype of the first motion picture camera.

Victoria Thornton, a wealthy philanthropist in an arranged marriage with one of the richest men in London, encounters Richard in a chance meeting in the rough East End and tends to his wounds in the street. Moved by her compassion Richard cannot forget her. Piqued by his charisma she cannot forget him.

However, when Richard is commissioned by Mr. Thornton to paint a portrait of his wife he realizes who she is. Victoria is startled and pleased to find the man she helped in the street and so begins their afternoons of art. With each appointment Victoria and Richard find themselves falling for each other. And so begins their great love affair. When Victoria realizes she is pregnant she sails for New York to avoid a scandal that could jeopardize her husband’s social standing and her own reputation. Broken-hearted, Richard, unable to let the love of his life slip away, scrapes up the money to book passage and reunite with Victoria.

Synopsis of That’s What She Told Me

Nashville meets Little Miss Sunshine in this short film about a NYC painter, Carly North, whose love affair with a wanna-be singing Cowboy and creative life have ground to a halt. After a visit from the Ghost of Johnny Cash, she is propelled on a surreal trip throughout the wilds of Upstate New York to find the father she has never met . . .That’s What She Told Me explores fantasy infringing on reality, and the struggle to decipher what is real and what isn’t. Using music, an American icon, and the lure of the road; this story speaks to anyone who has ever wondered where they really come from and whether we like it or not: the indelible mark of family on our lives.
