Seth Caplan, Plan II '99, Premieres Film in Austin

"In Search of Midnight Kiss" premiers on August 29 at the Alamo Drafthouse South.

Posted: August 27, 2008

Seth Caplan, the producer of In Search of a Midnight Kiss is a Chicago born, award-winning filmmaker. He has worked with production companies in New York, Los Angeles and Amsterdam. He was Plan II Honors major at the University of Texas at Austin and holds an MFA from the American Film Institute. Seth's Plan II thesis film, Duncan Removed was honored with a Student Emmy and was nominated for a Student Academy Award.

Seth's next project, an animated film featuring the voice of Martin Sheen, is based on the book Flatland.

In Search of a Midnight Kiss is directed by award-winning comic filmmaker, Alex Holdridge, whose last film, SEXLESS, is the only movie to have won both the Jury and Audience Award for best feature film at the SXSW film festival (2003).  The veteran art house producer, Anne Walker, (Before Sunrise, Dazed and Confused) is Executive Producer.  It stars Scoot McNairy (Art School Confidential, Six Feet Under) and Sara Simmonds (Echoes of Innocence).  


  In Search of a Midnight Kiss is a blend of up-and-coming talent and proven experience making it a dazzling independent film not to be missed.

In Search of a Midnight Kiss is a rollicking comic ride and tender journey though love, sex, and modern romance in Los Angeles on New Year's Eve.  

Wilson (Scoot McNairy), a twenty-nine-year old guy who has just had the worst year of his life, is new to Los Angeles, has no date, no concrete plans and every intention of locking the doors and forgetting the last year ever happened. That is until his best friend, Jacob (Brian McGuire), browbeats him into posting a personal ad on Craig's List.

When Vivian (Sara Simmonds), a strong-willed woman hell bent on being with the right aguy at the stroke of midnight responds, a chaotic, sometimes hilarious, sometimes touching journey through the black and white streets of L.A. begins.  In the waning hours of the year, emotional vulnerability and bitterly honest humor seem to be waiting around every corner.
