A NYU masterâ€™s thesis feature film, Cronies, is prepping to shoot in St. Louis.
A day in the life of Louis, a twenty-two year old guy, trying to ditch his childhood friend Jack, but when he finally has the opportunity he realizes their friendship was meant to last for a lifetime.
The film and it’s writer/director/producer Michael J. Larnell, was featured recently in Alive Magazine.
When New York filmmaker and STL native Michael Larnell got the opportunity to direct his first full-length feature filmâ€”thanks, in part, to a grant from the Spike Lee Production Fund and NYU Tisch School of the Artsâ€”it only made sense that he would shoot it in St. Louis. His family still lives here, as do many of his friends with whom he still maintains close ties. It was that friendship that served as the inspiration for Larnellâ€™s coming of age drama, â€œCronies.â€
