This Is A Business
(ON DEMAND)

DIRECTED BY - Tom Stern

What is IndiePix On-Demand?


Resolved to be a somebody, a shipping clerk named Turtletaub starts his own business knowing only that he intends either to create a product or to provide a service, and whichever one it is, he pledges, "it will be good...for everyone."

Turtletaub is a practical sort of dreamer who budgets his meager means so as to rent a thirty-seven square foot office space in which to start his business. He feels that his freedom, as well as that of his wife, depends upon his being able to succeed in this endeavor. And before he knows it, Turtletaub has happened upon hiring an awkward, kind day laborer as his assistant and a confident yet conflicted salesman as his sales force. Now all that Turtletaub needs is to figure out what it is that his business will do.

Press

"Four stars (Highest Rating). A wry, absurdist gem."

- Todd David Schwartz, CBS

"...endearingly quirky...the film contains wry comic touches...and the resonant notion that perhaps our worldly needs have been met a little too completely."
