In a time when new technology has made it easy to make a film, filmmakers come by the dozen. After shuffling through the trillions of unoriginal and terrible films, you find someone who's got a lot of talent behind that digital camera. From that sentence, you probably already know I'm going to follow up with, "meet so-and-so," which would make you very observant and correct. Meet Gary King, co-writer/director of the indie film, WHAT'S UP LOVELY.

I haven't seen this yet, but man does it look colorful and beautiful. WHAT'S UP LOVELY follows Luci (Jenn Dees) through the streets of New York. She lost her job, it's late, her mind wanders, so she embarks on a journey. Weird-but-interesting stuff happens.

Check out the trailer and official synopsis after the jump! You can follow WHAT'S UP LOVELY on Twitter, and become a fan on Facebook. Support indie filmmaking, it's where the heart of cinema began.

In the dead of night, a recently unemployed insomniac wanders the streets of New York discovering a city beyond her wildest imagination. Luci loses her job and times are tougher than ever. Unable to sleep, she begins an after-hours journey embarking on a series of strange encounters as she wanders the dark metropolis. During one unforgettable night, Luci comes face to face with her innermost fears and desires as she tries to find her way back home. Based on a concept by Jenn Dees and Gary King, WHAT'S UP LOVELY is a drama about the struggle to survive the city while battling the enemy within ourselves
