MAMA BEAR from matt cohen on Vimeo.


Today’s a big day for Matt Cohen! Mama Bear, a short in which Matt is directing, starts filming today! The film stars Mandy Musgrave as the title character. The short is about a mother who “has 24 hours to save her four year old and find him a liver transplant, and the only viable donor is the ex-kingpin/drug lord/piece of s*** boyfriend of hers.”

Other familiar names will appear in the short that you may know, including Rob Benedict, Richard Speight, Jr., Kim Rhodes, Briana Buckmaster, Jason Manns, Jim Beaver, and Adam Fergus.

Matt is raising money to fund the short via Indiegogo, where already over $31,000 has been raised. There are some great perks, including a behind-the-scenes video diary from Matt, which will be releasing soon and will give you an exclusive look as Matt films!

Donate to Matt’s campaign here, and help get this short film made! If you don’t have the means to donate, share, tweet, post, etc. with as many people as you can!

Stay tuned for more updates!
