I’M NOT GAY A MUSICAL—an independent musical feature film written and directed by Scott L. Semer, produced by Carrie Ormond, with choreography by Stacey Tookey and music and lyrics by Benjamin Velez—is the first of its kind.
Plagued by a hidden childhood trauma that is destroying his life, an obsessive-compulsive MMA fighter moves to Fire Island and pretends to be gay in order to buy the house of his dreams and exorcise his demons.
With cinematography by Luca Fantini, starring Sydney James Harcourt, and featuring a diverse cast and characters, I’M NOT GAY A MUSICAL delves with excitement, passion, artistry, depth, and heart-pumping entertainment into subjects never before explored by a motion picture musical.
All pre-production for this groundbreaking movie musical, including dance calls, casting, composing, music recording and rehearsals took place entirely over Zoom during a global pandemic. The spectacular results show the amazing resiliency, creativity, and ingenuity of its stunning and multi-talented cast and crew.
