Cathleen Carr and Micah Sherman enter “The Marriage Pact”

Here’s a fun short film some friends of the site just produced.

Terry and Maggie Johnston (Micah Sherman and Cathleen Carr) take the cliched childhood marriage pact — if they both found themselves still single 20 years later, then they’d be lawfully wedded to each other — to heart. Even if they’re not exactly the soul mates they thought they might have been. The Marriage Pact is shot as a mockumentary catching up with the couple one year into their marriage, with Josh Gondelman as the voice and literal director offscreen.

Story by Gondelman and Sherman, but then improvised by the cast.┬áRichard Siegel and Sharon Fischer play Terry’s parents.
