"Motion Picture For Development"

Honk! Honk!

Lars sets out to make a film about a mild-mannered man pushed to the limits by the hazards of life in the big city. But when the results aren't as good as he'd hoped, Lars himself is pushed to the limit - and beyond - by his own worst enemy. Himself.

Director Biography

Danish-born filmmaker Lars Fuchs came to the United States as an infant in the ’60’s, and has made New York City his home ever since, notwithstanding sojourns in Europe, Hong Kong, and Puerto Rico. He was irredeemably lost to film at Cornell University, where an introductory film-making course tempted him away from a career as a computer programmer. He has almost thirty years’ experience as a film and television editor, including many years in Europe and Asia. Notable credits include the feature documentary New York Street Games, which he co-wrote, the six-part series for ESPN Guide House: Montauk, the home design show While You Were Out, for which Lars was nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award. In Denmark Lars edited three episodes of the documentary series Family Portraits for the national broadcaster, Danmarks Radio. His short doc, "i live In Life" won several awards, including the Nyman Family Project Prize for 2013. He's currently in post production on the short documentary "Food City: The Feast Of The Five Boroughs" about hyperlocal New York City food.
