Try and Fail, A Short Film

Hey my name is Teagan, I am an actor, writer, producer, director, and ultimately, a collaborator. Try and Fail is an original screenplay by me. Writing it came out of pure love and curiosity, and I have a full team of talented and passionate artists behind the story. I hope you will take a moment to learn about the vision, and consider donating to support original works. Thank you!

Try & Fail is as an artistic representation of the battle between two conflicting emotions: Try, and Fail. Try is open to new ideas, has no fear of the unknown, is sometimes naive and idealistic, and sometimes tries a bit too hard. Fail is guarded by the walls of past experiences, is terrified of stepping outside of her comfort zone, and ultimately believes that there is too much pain in the pursuit of discovering something different.

I believe that through the representation of these emotions as people, the film will be able to convey the turmoil of the little battles that happen within each of us every day on our neverending journey of discovery. I hope the film will inspire the audience to see their own "tries and fails" as intrinsicly connected, and as a truly beautiful and innocent process that can be just as full of joy as it is full of challenge.

Try and Fail will both be played by me, an exciting acting challenge I can't wait to undertake. The film will be shot and directed by Drey Singer, and is being produced by DeForrest Taylor.

More about the team:

Drey is one of those artists I have been patiently waiting for the right project to work on with him. He hails all the way from Wichita, and dropped out of college early to take a job at Paramount Studios as a production assistant. He later went on to do freelance work and his own projects before landing a job at Panavision where he is now. Clear minded and creatively driven, I know Drey will elevate Try & Fail to the places in my dreams. For more info about Drey check out his website:

DeForrest is a brother from another mother who I met when we were studying in London about 5 years ago. Nothing short of a true visionary, when he finds something he believes in, there is truly nothing that can stop him from making it happen. I am honored to have him as a part of the creative and production team. 

Each contribution, no matter the size, really makes a huge difference. Every dollar means that I am closer to turning this fantasy vision into a reality, closer to creating something that you, the audience, can enjoy, and that I am supported by friends, family, and the community in doing what I love.

Thank you for your support and contribution!
