Cast and Crew Media Soundtrack

Max is recently homeless, and hopelessly in debt, until an eccentric metaphysical mentor puts him on an unavoidable path to enlightenment.

Mostly Awake, a film by Cody Swanson, is a micro-budget independent comedy filmed in Bushwick, Brooklyn. The cast and crew are local artists, writers, musicians, etc and the soundtrack includes over 20 local Bushwick bands.

Filming took place over seven months from July, 2012 to February, 2013 when various work schedules and weather allowed. It was made possible through funding from friends, family, and strangers on Kickstarter, and all the talent and enthusiasm of the cast and crew, many working on a film for their first time.

It was shot on a Canon 5DmkII.
