Film notes

Co-Directors: Shawnon Lott and Mitch Makowicz, both veterans themselves, use a cast of only military veterans. Filmed only in Maryland with no budget and a cast of 16 and a crew of 2.

TypeCast consists of an all volunteer cast of 16 and a crew of only 2, all of which are veterans of the military. Co-Directors Shawnon Lott and Mitch Makowicz completed every task needed from pre-production through post-production all while also appearing in the film. TypeCast had the bare minimum in regards to equipment, which appeals to a key element to the film. TypeCast is a harsh look at where our nation and society stand today. This film aims to try and begin the process of healing as a nation.
