A Fistful of Molars

Sarah knows she can make a lot of money from the Tooth Fairy, but where will she get the teeth she needs?

Logline: Six-year-old Sarah becomes an entrepreneur in a lucrative industry — she pulls teeth for The Tooth Fairy.
A Fistful of Molars is a short genre film starring Darby Butcher, Eleni Nico, Stephanie Herrera, and Steve Kasan. It was written, directed, shot and cut by Ryan Couldrey. Well, it's being cut right now — the short is slated for release in mid-late 2017, all depending on festival submissions. It will be released online sometime in early 2018, likely.
Above and below are ungraded stills and outtakes taken from the three days of filming in Whitby and Toronto, Ontario.
Follow Ryan on Instagram for updates during the editing and lead-up to release.

That's a wrap! From the end of day three with the cast and crew. Left to right: Eleni Nico (actor), Carolyn Wu (Ad/recordist), Ryan Couldrey (director/DP), Steve Kasan (actor), Margo Paige (HMU), Kira Hall (script supervisor)

Darby's getting up to something (as was Imogen with the slate... how many cameras do we need, Immie?)

The director is great with kids (Darby was a natural and knew how to get what she wanted, in this case, cookies!)
