Written, Directed and Starring Don Barnhart
Produced by Linda Vu & Skip Burrows
Freeloader is the story of a returning Veteran Guy Freeloader. He comes home from the war and finds out his wife has been cheating on him and sold off their house and belongings leaving him alone and homeless. Setting out to find himself, he ends up on the streets in Las Vegas and finds his way through stand up comedy.
This is will be the second feature film written, directed and starring nationally acclaimed and award-winning comedian Don Barnhart, Jr. "The story deals with the ongoing homeless problem here in Las Vegas and Freeloader becomes the Robin Hood of the homeless," said Barnhart in a recent interview while on tour headlining for Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines. He added, "I really like using comedy to deal with current affairs and hard to face issues and I try to do that in my stand up show as well."
Barnhart's production company was selected to showcase his TV show, The Freedom of Speech Comedy Series at The Montreal Comedy Festival and Don was recently the Featured Comedian on MySpace as well as winning last year's American Idol Underground's Comedy Contest. Barnhart is currently on tour with his DeEvolution of Man Comedy Show that he is developing into a one-man show and he will take time off to shoot the film Freeloader.
Freeloader will be produced under the Don Barnhart Entertainment production company and is truly a family run business with producer and wife of Barnhart Jr, Linda Vu who produced and starred in China Dolls and is the author of Fit, Feminine & Fabulous along with Skip Burrows whose recent credits include Con Air, The Mexican, 12 Monkeys and 3000 Miles To Graceland.
Barnhart's first film, "China Dolls" was a self-funded independent film that deals with the issue of human trafficking and is getting great audience reviews and earning the company money. Don added, "This was an ultra low-budget project that we shot ourselves and put it up on the internet and self distributed. With the power of the online community, we've already made our money back thru downloads and DVD sales."
"With the success of our first project, it was really a no-brainer to produce Freeloader ourselves and take on another film," said Vu. She added, Working together again is going to be a great experience".
