The Adventures of
Paul and Marian


A romantic musical comedy about capitalists, revolutionaries, and the people who love them.

Shot on a soundstage in front of a green screen, The Adventures of Paul and Marian's unique and dynamic visual style hearkens back to classic Hollywood while using the technology of our digital present.

Screenplay by Jay Stern with additional material by M. Sweeney Lawless. Original score by Zach Abramson with lyrics by Stern and Lawless, production design by Sarah Edkins, and cinematography by Alan McIntyre Smith.

The Adventures of Paul and Marian is available for rent and purchase on Amazon.

The incarnate Hollywood glossy picture, a musical comedy, as a crowd-financed project, is that feasible? All it takes is fantasy, singing, dancing, rhythm. Jay Stern did it with a fab cast of dozens: see for yourself.

The Adventures of Paul and Marian is crazy, charming, delightful, baffling, inventive, unpredictable, heartbreaking, uplifting, silly, serious, and singable! Like the inspired love child of Walt Disney and Guy Maddin.
