Drawing with Chalk
Drawing with Chalk is all about obligations and dreams and what happens when the two collide.
Prompted by their own experiences as aging artists facing tough choices about the future, co-writers Todd Giglio (who also directs) and Christopher Springer star as lifelong friends, Jay and Matt, two 40-year-old musicians attempting to jump-start their stalled career. As Matt's middle-age anxiety sets in, Jay struggles to find a balance between his music and family as he negotiates the minefields of friendship and marriage when the two worlds don't fit together.
