   BEAR WITH US  is a crazy romp about a guy who attempts to propose to his girlfriend in the most romantic way possible, but his plan starts to fall apart when a ravenous bear stumbles on their charming cabin in the woods. Think “Jaws”. But much funnier. And with a bear instead of a shark. 

   It’s a total comedy of errors that takes a comical look at just how far we'll go to preserve our relationships. The Film features Christy Romano, Mark Sullivan,  Cheyenne Jackson , Kevin Carolan, Collin Smith and Alice Ripley.




No art passes our conscience in the way film does, and goes directly to our feelings, deep down into the dark rooms of our souls.
