ABOUT LOST IN TIME:
I'm Jahnna Lee Randall the writer, director and producer of Lost in Time! I've been in the industry since I was 12 years old. Started off modeling, turned into an actress and now it's been three years as a filmmaker with my production company called Why Wait Productions (http://www.WhyWaitProductio...
). I have created 3 web series, 3 short films, 2 music videos, 5 commercials and a dozen comedy sketches (All are on my YouTube channel http://www.YouTube.com/Jahn...
All of my projects have been comedy based and I finally wanted to create a drama to show my filmmaking range. As an actress I played all genres but as a filmmaker I have only stuck to comedy until now! Lost in Time is a military drama short film about the battles that happen at home when their loved ones go off to war.
I grew up with two older brothers which treated me more like a daughter than a sister. On that note, dating was out of the question LOL! They both went to Iraq in 2003 and my world crumbled. I couldn't accept not seeing them everyday. I struggled with life and felt so lost without them. Anytime the phone would ring and/or someone would knock on the door I couldn't bare to answer it. I was sixteen years old, unknowing and not wanting to know what really does happen at war. I developed a drinking problem to numb the pain, hoping the time would go by faster so I could see my brothers again. In 2005 I got my two older brothers back. It was one of my most happiest moments of my life but also the saddest because all three of us had changed. With what they went through with war and what I went through with them being gone. Which is where I got the story essence idea for Lost in Time to showcase the other side that war creates.
Now please don't think this is one of those films that's all about pain and crying. I am a comedy writer so there are tons of cute moments throughout the film but also follows the reality of what can happen when war takes over and breaks up a family for a long period of time.
LOGLINE OF THE FILM:
Alienated from her world, an optimistic girl struggles to live her life while her fiance is overseas, pushing away those who love her most until a lost dog becomes a distraction from her daily concerns.
SYNOPSIS OF LOST IN TIME:
TESSA (Jahnna Lee Randall) a young, deeply in love girl awaits her military fiance HUNTER (Tomek Kosalka) to return home from duty. She has a tough time living life without her other half so everyday she has the same routine of tying yellow ribbons around her trees, waiting for his letters, phone calls and webchats so it feels like he's still there. She and Hunter's sister HANNAH (Sarah Elizabeth Johnston) always had a close relationship but ever since his departure overseas she has been dodging her and avoiding all contact. Tessa just wants to stay at home, keep everything exactly the same as Hunter left it and wait for her man to come back. Until a lost dog (Gizmo the Chihuahua), who won't leave her alone, uproots her life
and becomes a big distraction that changes what her regular routine has been.
